Domaine Skouras Zoe Rose 2012
The colοr is bright, medium deep cherry-red with pink hues. On the nose, it is vibrant and full of clarity with aromas of ripe cherries, and raspberries coupled with hints of sweet spices and floral, rose petal notes. On the palate it has a medium body, moderately-high acidity and the slightest suggestion of very ripe tannins. Flavours are consistent with aromas, together with some shades of sweet grass and bubble gum. The finish is moderately-long, with evolving flavours that add complexity.
External Reviews for Domaine Skouras Zoe Rose
The sweet cherry flavors of agiorgitiko get a floral lift from 30 percent moschofilero. Candied and bright, all it needs is a chill and a beach to show its best.
The 2012 Zoe Rose is Skouras’ familiar blend of Agiorgitiko (70%) and Moschofilero (30%) (both of which receive various different spellings in various places). A light, easygoing pink coming in at 12.5% alcohol, this emphasizes flavor and fruit, although the acidity is pretty good. It is a consistent performer in its style, but I do love how it shows when very young. With a rather tasty, raspberry tinge at this early stage in its life, it will likely make some swoon with delight, but the excellent acidity keeps it from being cloying. This won’t win points for power or complexity, but it should make a refreshing summer drink. You may not want to wait until summer. The exuberant fruit will calm down a bit, but many will prefer its juicy, flavor-laced finish just as it is. Drink now–2014.
