Color: Brilliant, crystal-clear, white yellow color with green tintsAroma: A fresh wine with intense floral and fruity bouquet dominated by aromas of white rose, melon and citrus.Tatse: A well-balanced fresh wine, with intense flavor and long aromatic aftertaste (orange blossom, grapefruit). - Winery
On the ripe side, exhibiting juicy spiced apple, gooseberry and red peach flavors filled with concentrated notes of allspice and nutmeg. White pepper and onion powder accents appear on the finish. Drink now through 2017.
Like many 2012s, this is very ripe, redolent of honeysuckle, roses, orange and white pepper, but it stands apart for its balance, a combination of fullness of texture and bright, clear freshness that lends the wine balance and precision.
This fresh but fruity white starts with aromas of white rose, grapefruit and citrus, followed by light and elegant flavors of lemon, grapefruit and sea salt. Playful but memorable.
The 2012 Moschofilero was tank aged. Rather full, ripe and fruity on opening — although that calms down a bit, allowing the wine a bit more distinction — this is a tasty and easy going Moschofilero that is a lot of fun. Relatively speaking, Boutari’s Moschos rarely have the steely minerality and transparency that many project, but they do have an easily accessible feel to them that will make them party and porch favorites. They are hard to resist on a hot summer day. This is quite charming. Drink it young and fresh. Drink now–2015.
