Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2013 Moschofilero, like its single-vineyard, ””green label”” Mantinia sibling also reviewed this issue, is also a Mantinia (the signature appellation for Moschofilero), but this designation by the winery emphasizing grape over region avoids brand confusion in the lineup. Reasonably concentrated for typical Moschofilero, it is viscous and delicious, but the price of admission here is its fresh, clean and pure demeanor with fine acidity. It is what I’ve come to expect from the grape, the winery and the bottling. It never quite has the weight of its Green Label sibling, but it is no wimp, reasonably penetrating and seeming so exuberant this year that it feels like a tank sample. If it is a step behind the Green Label in weight, it has many virtues of its own, including transparency and tension on the finish. This is pretty fine this year, on par with the nice 2012. I expect that this will hold better than some might suspect, but take it in stages. Drink now-2017. (Jun 2014)

Producer
In the heart of Mantinia in Arcadia, Peloponesse, is a small winery owned by Leonidas Nasiakos, a second-generation winemaker and forth generation viticulturalist. His estate produces 6,500 cases of wine from the indigenous appellation varietal, Moschofilero. Moschofilero is a red grape that produces a beautiful light-bodied white wine that is fruity with pear, peach, melon, and citrus flavors and floral aromas of jasmine. Nasiakos’ vineyard is 2000 feet above sea level at the highlands of Mantinia. These very high elevations prolong the harvest time which ensures that sugar levels are at desirable levels. For Nasiakos, harvest time is in early October. Nasiakos has won numerous awards for his winemaking techniques and serves as the only consultant to the Greek Wine Federation for the Moschofilero varietal.
