I purchased this bottle of Boutari, 2010, Moschofilero just out of curiosity. How would the wine hold up to a California February, versus a summer on an Ionian Island? It wasn't a bad wine, but it wasn't a great wine either. It was a little light and citrusy, a smidgen heavy on the acid and a tad perfumey, but it made a fairly decent aperitif. The Moschofilero grape is native to Greece, hailing from the Mantinia region of the Peloponnese. A winsome, pink-skinned grape it reminds me a bit of Pinot grigio to look at. I think at $10, I may just buy it again. Maybe.
