Katogi & Strofilia White Dot Moschofilero Rhoditis is from Greece, and is a fresh, aromatic white wine.
Greece was not the first place where vines were planted and grape juice was fermented into wine, but Greeks taught us how to enjoy wine. Dubbed the nectar of the gods, wine has been a vital part of Greek daily life for more than 4,000 years, but over the millennia Greek wines lost their lustre as the centre of winemaking shifted to Italy, France and Spain. The last decade has seen an explosion in the quality of Greek wines, as well-trained and well-travelled young winemakers have rejuvenated and improved production. Katogi & Strofilia were two groundbreaking wineries who merged in 2001, forming one of the most dynamic forces in Greek wine culture. The White Dot is a perfect example of modern Greek wine: casual, clean and delightfully packaged. Featuring aromatic native grapes Moschofilero (mosk-oh-FEE-lero) grown in the hills of Mantinia, and Roditis (row-DEE-tis) from a mountain slope vineyard, this dry white has a wild floral intensity, apricot and bay leaf flavours, well-chiselled acidity and a soft, round texture. Team with a picnic of Middle and Far Eastern delicacies.
