Skouras White Zoe 2012

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2012 Zoe White is a 60/40 Roditis-Moschofilero blend (spelled Moscofilero on the back label, as transliterations change frequently here). It a nice and consistent value point in the usually well priced Skouras lineup, straightforward, but quite charming and sometimes an overachiever — like this year. In its first blush of youth, it shows good solidity for this level (relative to these grapes, of course) and nice persistence. Aromatic, pure and friendly, it is also fruity and flavorful. It is well balanced, but with some notable crispness on the back end to give it an invigorating quality. I appreciated its ability to come into balance, become more transparent and show some finesse as it aired out. Mostly, it just tasted great, making it a perfect picnic wine or porch sipper, while maintaining its refreshing demeanor. Stock up, but buy what you plan to drink now. This summer will be its peak in all likelihood, but it may drink well next year, too. Wines like this do not always last long at peak. After that, if you’ve planned correctly and are drinking fast enough, you shouldn’t have any left anyway. Drink now–2014.

A yummy alternative to your favorite Riesling, the Zoe is light-bodied and fruit-forward, but dry. Bright and crisp, featuring green apple and tropical fruit flavors. Pair this with sushi, grilled fish or light salads.

This is filled with floral notes, with crisp acidity to the white cherry, melon and gooseberry flavors. Orange peel accents grace the finish. Drink now.
