Here’s what super fabu Vegas Wineaux (left) had to say about the 2005 Moschofilero by Boutari, which she discovered at a recent blind tasting she hosted.
“The Moschofilero surprised, because that’s the name of the actual grape from the Peloponnese (doesn’t that sound sexy?), and it was quite good. The descriptions of the older wines that I was able to find all came from the time that they were young. The description that I was able to find on the Moschofilero described it as straw-colored with a greenish tint. Six years after vintage, it is a shimmering gold. And, yes, I’m still stunned… The moral of this story? Don’t deny yourself the experience of trying wines from different areas. There’s a reason why the people make the wines; we may not like them, but we gain more experience, educate our palates, and occasionally find the gem.”
Vegas Wineaux, we love your style!
