Semeli, 'Feast' White Wine 2012, Greece
It's nice to feature something new in the Wine of the Week slot, and this is a brand new grape for me called Moschofilero, that comes from the Greek Peloponese peninsula. It is a highly aromatic variety, in the same floral-strewn ballpark as Gewurztraminer and Torrontès, but if the style of those is too perfumed for you, this one reins things in just a little. The nose has notes of lychee and roses, as well as ripe melon and Ogen melon skins. On the palate that slightly exotic quality is there, but it is a racy white fruit and citrus acidity that drives this, with a pleasing, limpid texture and clarity and food-friendly, dry finish. It's a gorgeous summer wine with only 12% alcohol too. Watch the video for more information and specific food-matching suggestions. £8.50, Oddbins and Oddbins.com
