Moschofilero is an indigenous variety of the region and one of the most interesting Greek varieties. It has a special aromatic profile, with freshness and high acidity. It is considered to be a grey variety and some clones have a more reddish hue. The winery produces two different wines based on 100% Moschofilero.
The first is a PDO Mantinia, a blend from our parcel selection that is vinified on stainless steel. We have made an attempt to bring out a different dimension of this variety, as our intention is to keep long contact with the lees and produce a more gastronomical version gaining on balance, aromatic intensity and longer potential, rather than the usual easy drinking version of Moschofilero. For this reason, we invested in vineyard management.
The second wine is a pink version of Moschofilero. It takes this pale rose colour after a long skin contact maceration. This is a PGI Arcadia, as the PDO is reserved only for the classic white version. The rose expression of Moschofilero is a very interesting approach to this multidimensional variety.
