Piccolo Mondo semi-sweet white (Greece): a big little world between sea, mountains and exciting Moschofilero

Moschofilero (mos-ko-FEE-leh-ro) variety is native to the Greek Peloponnese, its pink skin, aromatic power and acidity make it unique in the Old World. An aromatic power that has led it to be compared with the Italian Gewürztraminer or with the Muscat. Seméli winery (Nemea wine region, in Eastern Peloponnese) knows this, and knows that if you are looking for sweetness it will balance top with the natural acidity of the Mοσχοφίλερο. Therefore, the semi-sweet version is a great option to conquer all palates.4

Visually straw yellow. The first discreet nose that keeps notes of roasted stone white fruit in a nod to certain Bordeaux VNDs such as Barsac or off-dry of Côtes de Gascogne. Squeezed grapefruit, orange blossom or roses hints. In mouth a sweet and off-dry entry. Development of an excellent balance between roundness and freshness. It is not cloying and it keeps acidity very well. It evokes ripe white fruits of stone, white flower, pear and citrus mouthfeels. Very easy to drink (11'5 % vol). Finish with a herbal background and ripe citrus with good persistence.

A 1oo% Moschofilero to enjoy in company, at any time of the day, to contemplate a sunset on the Greek coast with that special woman. A very Greek and accessible price of 6'80 euros / $ 7'70 make it even more recommendable. As a pairing the Greek vegetarian recipes based on quality products is the best. Also the Asian cuisine, especially salads with lime and coriander, can enhance the virtues of this white wine. I insist on a lady nearby, they will drink it as if it were water.
