When in a Greek restaurant, try a wine from Greece! So we asked for a suggestion. My wine knowledge of Greece is pretty light. We were at Kalamata and our waitress recommened this one so we gave it a try. This is a light easy drinking white with some Sauv Blanc like features, pale in color, a mild bouquet and a medium finish. I paired it with grilled Quail and it went ok. I would give this one 87-88. A super patio sipper! For the price it’s a good deal. Don’t expect a lot of complexity, but for the money it’s not bad at all!

Moschofilero (mo-sko-FEEL-ero) is a deep pink-skinned grape that is used to produce aromatically intense white wines. Indigenous to Greece, it is reminiscent of Muscat with its impressive floral, grapey and spicy qualities. Its crisp acidity brings a nice balance to the wine. Enjoy this version alongside mussel pilaf or roasted red mullet.
