The Canadians have already celebrated their Thanksgiving (the second Monday on October).
At least one group of Canadian oenophiles served Boutari with their feast after the 2009 Moschofilero by Boutari was recently named a winner in Canada’s Wine Access magazine 2010 International Value Wine Awards.
Here’s what Vancouver Sun wine writer Anthony Gismondi had to say about Boutari Moschofilero:
In the case of turkey, you can’t go wrong serving red or white wine…
One of the most exciting categories was ‘White Single Varieties.” Names such as moschofilero, Gruner veltliner, fiano and assyrtiko may sound strange, but they sure tasted friendly. The big surprise was the interest in Pinot Blanc, and several showed well. The co-winners were Red Rooster Pinot Blanc 2009 with its bright nose of lemon and peach and similar flavours, and the refreshing stylish Boutari Moschofilero 2009 from Greece; both will make your turkey dinner special.
What are you drinking for Thanksgiving this year?
