2008 Mantinia

2008 Boutari

2008 Boutari Moschofilero, ACQS Mantinia

The second wine of the night. Or evening I should say.

Light straw in colour - almost changes a few shades as you go towards the rim. Good, fruit-forward nose. Lots of waxy fruit, melon, pear, and honey. In the palate, there is good texture, with a weight and creaminess that you don't expect. Glossy. Good length on the finish.

Greek white wines are a subject area that I definitely want to explore further.
