It's still too early

You know that here at botilia.gr we don’t easily get excited, but when do, we are very excited. You also know that we are probably testing more wines than anyone else in Greece, and we reject more than 90% of them to get to those few we know you ‘ll love. Well, now we are very excited! That's because we discovered a great big wine!

Time has come to meet Moschopolis 6! It's one of those times that the wonderful label is worthy (maybe even a bit short of) the amazing content of the bottle. As for 6, it suggests the 6 months spent in second use of French oak barrels.

Moschopolis 6 was released in just 2947 bottles and is one of the first samples to be signed in full.

Leaving the vine to speak for itself and by applying pioneering methods, he ensures excellent quality and ideal fruit concentration. Assyrtiko is grown in the small, dry and full of stones coastal family vineyard. By completely changing the image we have for the Assyrtiko vines, the fruit hangs at a height of 1.8 m for protection from the sun and high temperatures. And because nothing is common about this winery, Xinomavro participates in the blend with blanc de noir vinification giving unexpected complexity and depth. Minimal but crucial intervention, indigenous, wild yeasts and bottling without filtering do the rest. And they do it really well.

Moschopolis white 6 is a wine with a great future. Enjoy it now, but if you want to hear us, keep some bottles for at least five years. Trust us, it's worth waiting.

Tastes Like

Gentle lemon yellow color with greenish hues in the glass.

Rich, expressive in the nose, with its aromas opening and evolving minute by minute. Melon and banana make the beginning, followed by peach and citrus. Then the flowers come into play. Chamomile, honeysuckle, hyacinth and lemon blossom gradually express themselves in the glass. The discreet barrel is expressed with vanilla, butter and caramel. The diffused minerality in the form of wet stone is present throughout, while petroleum aromas lurk in the corner.

Full bodied, with a greasy feeling and vivid acidity that perfectly balances the palate. Lime, peach and braids get a buttery feel while the barrel that is more pronounced, adding vanilla, nuts and a light feel of caramel. The long finish leaves a slightly nutty taste of bitter almond with a long duration.
