2014 Skouras Moscofilero Péloponnèse (last of vintage) (Previously $15)

SKU #1231462 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Moscofilero, the last in this issue's vertical, is from a rather more restrained and difficult vintage. It shows fine purity and elegance, a fresh feel, but not quite the concentration or intensity of some other years. Its acidity still makes it rather appealing. It is a fine effort in a difficult year. (MS)  (8/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Shows a firm structure to the zesty red peach, Fuji apple and melon flavors, accented by notes of white pepper and anise. Powerfully crisp on the finish. (KM)  (11/2015)

Outside of Muscat, other grape Moscofilero is often said to resemble is Gewürztraminer. Though I, personally, have yet to encounter an example of Moscofilero that came anywhere near the Wagnerian scale of a richer Gewürztraminer, the Skouras 2014 does show the more luscious, effusive side of the grape’s personality, but stops well shy of launching an aria. For one thing, it finishes with tongue-tingling acidity after the round body of the wine and its evocation of rose, honeysuckle, and intense, sweet, citrus aromatics. We’re safely on the shore here, gazing out across the sea, as the party boat of hedonistic indulgence slowly hoots and thumps its way out of view.

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines. Click for a list of bestselling items from Greece.
