"The 2018 Moscofilero (as Skouras spells it) comes in with four grams of residual sugar, 6.6 grams of total acidity and 12% alcohol. George Skouras called this a rainy vintage (which he sought to combat in various ways described in the producer note this issue), but this is a pretty good result. In fact, you might want to buy a lot to drink over the next couple of years. They say fine wineries show their stuff in tough years. I guess Skouras is pretty good."
George Skouras is one of the producers who served me up some older Moschofileros in my quest to come to grips with how long they can be kept. I confess to being a sucker for Moschofilero, a grape that reminds a bit of Loureiro in Portugal. It will never be the biggest or fattest, but it has fine purity of fruit when well made. The vertical here was a lot of fun. Apart from the scores and notes, conclusions are drawn in the accompanying article. One point to make here–the consistency of the Moschofilero bottlings. Even in difficult years, they stay true to form and generally age well. Remember, though, that the provenance here was perfect–pulled directly from the winery's cella
“Mosco” means “aromatic”, “filero” means “leaf”. This wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel.
The Moscofilero comes from 25 year old vineyards planted in sandy soils at 750 meters above sea level. Fermented in stainless steel vats. Short skin contact, no malolactic fermentation and short ageing over fine lees. Flowery, crisp acidity, intense on aromas and flavours." ~ Winery notes
