"Notios, which means "the Southerner," comes to us from the southern portion of the Greek mainland in the Peloponnese. This is a blend of Moschofilero and Rodititis, creating a wine with a bright citrus body and a lean, long finish. Perfect with seafood.
Moschofilero: Pronounced "mos ko FEE le ro", this white grape is often compared to Gewurztraminer. This beautiful white variety possesses a distinctly floral nose and a palate of lychee, rose, and exotic spices.
Roditis: A rose colored grape used primarily to make the light white wines of Patra. Crisp and dry, with aromas of citrus and honeysuckle, this is a good grape to try in place of your daily Pinot Grigio. This varietal is frequently blended with Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer to make richer, more full-bodied whites, and with Savatiano to make Retsina"~ Winery notes
