Tasting Notes

WINE INFORMATION

Located  in  Nemea,  Greece,  Domaine  Skouras  was  founded  in  1986   by  Greek  oenologist George  Skouras.  After  training  at  University  of   Dijon,  in  Burgundy,  France,  George gained winemaking  experience   throughout  France,  Italy  and  Greece. He  eventually  settled  down, moving  back  to  his  homeland  in  the  late  1980s  to  produce  wines   using  indigenous  Greek varieties  as well as international ones.  

Nemea  is  a  region  rich  with  wine  history.  Archeological  excavations   have  revealed evidence  of  winemaking  in  there  from  more  than  3500  years  ago!  

Fruit for this blend was grown at two different sites: Roditis grapes came from 25+ year old vines in the Peloponnese planted at an elevation of 1,476ft, and Moscofilero grapes were grown at an altitude of 2,460ft in Mantinia on vines over 20 years old. Both grapes were vinified separately in stainless steel tanks before they aged for a short time on the fine lees.

TASTING NOTES

This very aromatic wine offers lightly bitter ginger skin and lychee. It smells as though it might be too much of a good thing, but it isn’t. Lovely flavors of citrus, ginger, lychee, and orange blossom join clean acidity in this medium-bodied wine with a longer finish.

FOOD PAIRING

This white blend will go with a range of foods from roasted chicken to grilled vegetables, soups and salads, rice bowls, as well as sushi and other Asian inspired dishes.  Enjoy with fish tacos or, of course, a gyro of your choice!
