Nasiakos Moschofilero- from the wine virgin

The first wine of the Strange Wines, Newer Friends event was a dry white wine – Nasiakos Moschofilero. This wine was from Greece. At first look, I thought I was not going to like this wine. The wine is classified as a “dry white wine,” and it says so even on the bottle. “Dry” doesn’t associate well with me. One of the reasons I used to dislike red wines was because I felt like many of them tasted dry to the mouth. As I have tasted more red wines, I realized that this was not always the case. The Nasiakos also followed this trend – it was delicious!

The smell was a buttery, citrus scent that was quite delightful. It reminded me of some Chardonnay’s I have tasted, but with a bit of a zest. The taste was very similar to the smell although the buttery and creamy factors seemed to take a front seat to the citrus. It also didn’t have a lot of the acidity that a lot of white wines I’ve tasted have had. I felt like this balance between the flavors went very nicely and my palette seemed to think so as well. In fact, a lot of people attending the event thought so, as this particular wine sold out by the night’s end.

Nasiakos is considered an unusual wine because of it’s grape varietal and location; however, this wine is one of the best whites I’ve tried yet. The flavor is interesting and unique, but still extremely enjoyable.
