2007 Boutari Moschofilero - Greece, Peloponnisos, Mantinia (6/14/2008)
WIML88,PURPLE88

Tasted June 14, 2008.

11% alcohol. Opened and served immediately. Straw to like yellow color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of florals, white peaches, limestone and melons. Flavors of lime, grapefruit, white peach and some lemon notes. Tangy acidity, light body. Fairly short finish. Drink over the short term. Decent inexpensive summer quaffer at $13.99 a bottle local price and recommended only on that basis but don't pay more. (88 pts.)

The Malamatina makes a Retsina line with very little pine that I tasted recently. The grape that is normally used is generally a bland, high yelding village variety. If you get these young enough, they can have some fresh, forward qualities that make them drinkable.
