Tasting Notes

Moschofilero is a specialty of Troupis Winery, and the family has been growing it here in the Peloponnese since the '70s. This is a very low intervention style, with wild yeast, skin contact, and it is unfined and unfiltered. Aromatic and fresh, but with a slightly tannic structure, this wine goes perfectly with seafood, and meze.

Staff Pick Notes

March '22. It’s been a long, strange, winter. Maybe it’s too early for rosé, but I was in the mood for something similar, so with summer on my mind, I reached for this. Moschofilero is a pink-skinned, aromatic grape variety grown on Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. It’s tart and juicy, with notes of rhubarb, cherry, and dried orange that grow more expressive with time in the glass. The Troupis family has a long history of work in agronomy, where vines, fruit trees, and flowers have been grown and sold from their nursery in Mantinia. As with other traditional Greek families who make wine for their own table, their efforts naturally grew into the desire to share their passion with others. If you’re looking to get into Greek wines, or looking for an alternative to the same old rosés, give this one a shot, and think of summer.
