Tselepos, Mantinia (Peloponnese, Greece) Moschofilero 2018

($17, Cava Spiliadis):  Moschofilero, a grape indigenous to the Mantinia region of the Peloponnesus, produces a floral wine, reminiscent of Muscat, though far less fragrant.  Its perfumed nature might make you think it’s sweet.  Anything but.  This one, from Tselepos, a top producer, is firm, with bracing acidity. Though it will cut through as hearty a dish as roast lamb, a better match would be Mediterranean seafood.
