Skouras Moscofilero, PGI Arcadia, Peloponnese, Greece 2019

Regular price £16.74

Elegant white Moschofilero from vineyards above 750m, a benchmark example of this lovely grape

Fermented in stainless steel vats. Short skin contact, no malolactic fermentation and short ageing over fine lees. Flowery, crisp acidity, intense on aromas and flavours in the nose and mouth. White flowers –soft and fresh–, honeysuckle, violets, rose petals, crisp acidity.

The Domaine Skouras was established in 1986. Over the years, it has created a disciplined, innovative and serious wine-producing presence. The company owns two wineries in the Peloponnese, in the well-known region of Nemea. Owner George Skouras studied wine making in Dijon, before returning and dedicating himself to exploring the potential of the famed Agiorgitiko grape.

Tasting Note: The colour is light whitish yellow. Opulent aromas –light and fresh– of white flowers and honeysuckle are revealed, rounded out with notes of citrus fruits and lime. Medium- to full-bodied, refreshing and vigorous acidity, with the aromas on the mouth following those of the nose. Elegant, balanced and with a long finish.
