A Greek drama of a wine: an intriguing, delicately perfumed blend of Roditis and Moschofilero from the Peloponnese peninsula showcasing notes of honeydew melon with a touch of mountain herbs.
Thiasos is made for us by one of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolutionYiannis Paraskevopoulos, using grapes from Nemea in the northeastern area of the Peloponnese peninsula. The Thiasos was the retinue of Dionysos, the Greek God of wine. It consisted of Maenads and Satyrs. The Maenads were mythical nymphs ( females ) and the Satyrs were half human, half horse.
The Roditis (pronounced Rod-EE- tiss) and Moschofilero (Mosho-FEEL- ero) grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit and create a fresh, aromatic wine.
A modern take on a Greek classic. This is an intriguing and delicately perfumed blend of the Roditis and Moschofilero grapes from the Peloponnese peninsula. A spicy, textural combination of refreshing acidity and weighty balance; a revelation.
The balance of weight and spiciness lends itself to oily fish, rich dressed salads and delicate rice dishes.
