“Think of this increasingly popular Greek white (that comes from a pink-skinned grape),” writes leading U.S. wine writer and educator Bill St. John in reference to Boutari Moschofilero, “as a cross, in aroma and flavor, of Spanish albarino and Alsace pinot gris. It registers in with low alcohol so, combined with its lively character, it’s extremely refreshing and eminently gulpable.”

The Boutari Moschofilero is “yums at every sip; green apple, green melon, zippy acidity.”

He also recommend Bouatri’s Malagouzia Matsa, noting that it is made from a “highly aromatic grape grown mostly in northern Greece. Does not lose its aroma esters as, say, pinot gris does when ripened in high heat.”

His tasting note for Boutari Malagouzia Matsa: “All lemon, peach and hazelnut swaddled in creamy texture.”
