Troupis Moschofilero "Fteri" '20
If you know a thing or two about Greek wine, you will probably have heard of the grape Moschofilero. It is a main variety of the central Peloponnese, often used to produce light, aromatic, dry white wine. What you may not know is that Moschofilero is actually a pink-skinned grape, and it can be quite different in the hands of a skilled grower and winemaker. One of the best producers of Moschofilero in Greece, Troupis Winery was founded in 2010 by Yiannis Troupis. Over the past decade, Troupis has become one of the premier producers within Mantinia PDO. Yiannis is the kind of guy who never stops moving—he’s always tweaking and tinkering and buzzing about, trying to figure out the way things work and how to improve them. One way in which his approach to Moschofilero is so interesting is that he continues to experiment with its versatility, producing it in a variety of styles.
The fruit for the Moschofilero “Fteri” comes from within the Mantinia PDO, but it is cropped at slightly higher yields than the PDO allows for. The fruit is grown in the estate vineyards of Troupis, planted at an elevation of 600-700 meters. The soil is composed of sandy loam, with heavier clay loams and good drainage. The grapes are hand harvested, cooled before crushing, and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged on its lees until bottling in the spring. Previous vintages of “Fteri” have been incredibly popular, and this one will be, too. The wine shows beautiful aromas of fresh citrus, peach, herbs, jasmine, and rose. With bright, well-balanced acidity and fruit, “Fteri” can be sipped on its own or paired with an array of seafood, vegetables, pasta, and even white meats.
