Moschofilero is an exciting grape which makes fragrant white wines. Predominantly found in Mantinia, a high-altitude area of Greece’s Peloponnese, some growers are using oak and greater skin contact to make richer versions with greater depth and complexity and, in doing so, sometimes extract enough colour to make a rosé, particularly from the darker Mavrofilero clone. It is prone to clonal variation with the other main clones, Asprofilero and Xanthofilero, being paler skinned than the standard pink-hued Moschofilero. Its rose petal aroma (moscho means musk or sweet-smelling in Greek) and fresh acidity means it is gaining favour beyond its homeland of the Peloponnese.
