Why do we love it?

The 947 bottles of 2016 proved to be very few as the wonderful Moschopolis 8 2016 from Moschopolis winery dissapeared within just a few months of its release. Moschopolis 8 2017 is here to soften this feeling of dissatisfaction that 2016 left. Yes, it arrived, and we have it in our hands, with a slightly changed look but the same, fantastic content. The bottle is darker and not transparent because this rose wine has aging potential and we suggest you keep it (if you can resist). Vinification is the same, with the 8-month maturation in oak giving it its complex and so unique character. The barrels used are both new (30%) and old (70%). The blend also known as Syrah and Xinomavro still participate in the blend 50-50. Also, the bottles remain very few and this time you know what you must do to avoid running out.

And this year, like last year, we loved it for its structure, intensity and sophistication that reminiscent of red wine and make it stand out from all the other roses that are out there. Light, onion or salmon color, with a playful fruity character, is everything that Moschopolis 8 2017 IS NOT. Here we are talking about a rose with vivid pink color which will shake you from the first sip and make you look at your glass again and again just to be sure that this is a rose wine. Rarely, a rosé wine can offer so much excitement and even more rarely can stand right next to difficult and complex dishes such as caponata with tuna fillet or a seafood carbonara with smoked eel and pecorino. After all, Moschopolis 8 2017 belongs to a unique (and our favorite) category called “Badass Rose”, and if yoy taste it you ‘ll understand what we mean!

We forgot to tell you that this rosé has aging potential, but something tells us that it will not last over a month ...!

Tastes Like

It has medium pink color with orange hues.

Intense and attractive nose, that magnetizes you from the first moment with sweet cherry, ripe strawberry, vanilla and rose notes. After a while tomato jam, butterscotch, Turkish delight and toast make their appearance.

On the palate it is rich and oily, with crisp acidity and a suspicion of tannins that give a nice structure. Strawberry, cherry, sweet tomato and white pepper meet vanilla, tobacco, toasted brioche and toffee caramel. Enjoyable toffee aftertaste that just does not end ...
