Skouras 'Salto' Moscofilero 2012
Wine Advocate 92
"One of my favorite Moschofileros from one of my favorite producers. Skouras hit it big with this "wild yeast" bottling this year. Moschofileros are not big and bombastic. This is not for you if you want fat, ripe and oaky. If you appreciate minerality, transparency and crisp intensity, though, this is a beauty that should age better than most."

" A wild yeast fermented 100% Moscofilero made solely from the Mavrofilero clone, one of the most aromatic Moscofilero clones, is one of Skourass latest additions to the portfolio. Named Salto, which means leap in Greek, this bottling represents their jump to the next level of Moscofilero production.

About
Skouras Winery was started in 1986 in Pyrgela, Argos by Dijon-trained oenologist George Skouras. Working with both indigenous varieties as well as international varieties, Skouras started producing very high quality Greek wines in the late 1980s. The first bottling of the Megas Oenos, his flagship wine launched in 1988 was the first wine in Greece to blend Aghiorghitiko with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nemea has been regarded as a great winemaking region since the time of the ancient Greeks; Homer called this region Ampeloessa which literally means Full of vines. Recent archeological excavations have revealed winemaking being done here over 3500 years ago.
The most important grape variety in here is Aghiorghitiko, also known as St. George, derived from the name of the town where the grape variety is thought to have come from Agios Georgios or Saint George.
Skouras makes another equally impressive wine Grand Cuvee Nemea made which is one hundred percent Aghiorghitiko. The grapes come from one of the highest vineyard sites in all of Europe, planted at over 3400 feet above sea level.
Skouras Winery sources grapes from its own vineyards and from dedicated grape-growers in the region and is today at the forefront of Greek estates. Demand for these terroir-driven and estate-bottled wines is strong in both Greece and around the world. " ~ Winery notes
