pretty bland; at first it smelled like a floral window cleaner, onto sauvignon blanc tropical fruit with a slight dip into unoaked chardonnay... this wine is not a good show for the grape.

The 2011 MOSCOFILERO was rather tightly wound when I first saw it, needing time to come around. Despite having played with it for awhile, I still didn’t see all this had to offer when I first saw it not long after release. On a recent taste a few months back, it had improved to the point of showing its depth and power, especially when held open for a couple of days when it showed better. It is quite persistent for a Moschofilero (remember, Skouras uses an alternative transliteration). Yet, it was, remarkably, still unevolved, still tight, and not yet fully expressive, showing signs that it could improve significantly. I am thinking that this is a Moscho that actually would benefit from being drunk in the summer of 2013, rather than in the summer following its release. If I am wrong and it goes nowhere else, it is and was a very fine value at this price point. Drink now–2015.

A rapierlike white, delivering apple, pear and grapefruit flavors flanked by plenty of mineral and slate notes. Ripe orange accents linger as plenty of spicy hints mark the vibrant, long-lasting finish. Drink now through 2018.

#90: France-trained vintner George Skouras founded his winery in 1986. The grapes for this bottling come from sandy-soiled vineyards in Mantinia. Moschofilero, a low-acid, aromatic variety indigenous to the Péloponnése peninsula, thrives in the subappellation, where the elevations of more than 2,000 feet provide a cooler growing climate. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and undergoes no malolactic fermentation, preserving acidity and the grape's aromatic qualities.

Light, aromatic and refreshing, with opulent aromas of white flowers, honeysuckle and passion fruit leading to a crisp, fruit-forward palate. Lively acidity merges with hints of lemon, orange and white pepper on the delicate, yet persistent finish.

The colour is light white-yellow. Opulent aromas ofwhite flowers, light and fresh and honeysuckle are revealed, rounded out with notes of rose petal and passion fruit. Bright, joyful acidity that is positively refreshing leads on to a surprisingly long finish of orange rind and a whisper of white pepper.

Crisp with a hint of spiciness, this wine is made from 100 % Moschofilero, Greece's signature white grape.
