Skouras Moscofilero, 2016

A fine Greek wine.  In Vancouver no less.  Thank you Marquis.

 

Gismondi went a little gaga on this.  We had high hopes, especially since the bottle of Assyrtiko we tasted back in Australia made us turn face on Greece and want to revisit the eastern Mediterranean in a big way.

 

Yes, it’s a fragrant posy of floral/herbaceous notes and the crispness is palate cleansing, but somehow it was also a bit flat and forgettable.  Opulence, as AG put it, well that was lost on us.  Start to finish it seemed refined, yes, most definitely better than the plonk that BC Liquor gets in, but for the money there is more to discover over in Spain.

 

Price: $33 at Marquis.

 

Market Liquidity: Tasty but not tantalizing, refreshing but not revelatory.
