Troupis Fteri Agiorgitiko Moschofilero Rose 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

WHWC Staff Notes: I love rosé season, which for me is all year round, and never have my options been so bountiful. Sure, there are the usual outstanding suspects from France, as well as our domestic gems. But the true joy in rosé wine now lies in the off-the-beaten-path stunners that seem to spring up every day. I'm already a fan of the Troupis whites from the Fteri region on the island of Peleponnese, and the red grape of choice for the estate is the deeply colored, tannic Agiorgitiko, which on its own makes for difficult rosé wines. Ioannis Troupis counters this by blending it with the steely, racy white grape Moschofilero to create a pink wine of entrancing ruby color. The aromas are at once unctuous and yet vigorous, displaying strawberry, rose petal, and tart cherry. The dense, sappy mid-palate is buoyed by electric acidity from the Moschofilero component with further flavors of peach skin and orange pith piling on top of the red fruit. This wine made for a perfect complement to my Greek orzo salad with cucumber, kalamata olives, charred cherry tomatoes, feta, and fresh parsley. It didn't hurt that we had a front row seat for a jaw-dropping sunset on Dockweiler State Beach, as well. Did I mention I love rosé season? - Andrew Kitz, 5/13/16

The Troupis Winery is located in the heart of the Mantineia vineyards at an altitude of 700 m. in the area known as Fteri. Ioannis Troupis’ family has been involved in the wine industry since the mid-1970s when they cultivated vines primarily for trading their products but also for making wine from some of the grapes to meet the family’s needs.   Over the last few years Tasos Troupis, now in charge supported by his children, has created a production and wine-making facility by putting to good use the experience and love he has for the vine. It is a modern family business of small capacity as it is exclusively involved with producing and bottling wine from the family’s privately-owned vineyards (approximately 70 stremmas) which they lovingly tend and cultivate.
