Troupis Winery Thunder Moschofilero Rose
The Troupis family has farmed the Mantinia plateau of the Peloponnese since the 1970s, growing fruit trees, flowers, and - of course - grapes from their nursery. The microclimate of this part of southern Greece is particularly suited to the traditional moschofilero grape, which grows only on the high plateau of Arcadia. The Troupis family established their modern winery in 2010 in the Fteri (“fern”) region in the heart of Mantinia at 700 m elevation. With a total of nearly 70 acres under vine, they remain focused on using modern technology to showcase the best traditional grapes of the area. ‘Thunder’ is made from the pink-skinned moschofilero grape, fermented in stainless steel, and the result is a light-hearted, liter-full of fun! Exuberantly aromatic, its savory notes of honeysuckle, strawberry Starburst, peach, lychee, bubblegum, and spice practically leap from the glass onto your palate! This medium-bodied rosé offers generous fruit but finishes totally dry and refreshing.
