Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2012 Mantinia is the winerys single vineyard Moschofilero. It has the lime green label and it is named and labeled so as to distinguish it from the winerys other appellation Moschofilero. (They both are Moschofileros with appellation Mantinia status, actually.) As in last years comparison, the regular Moscho shows great until you taste this one. For the tiny price difference, theres an easy choice here. It is also 12% alcohol as listed, but there is another layer of depth here with this green label bottling. Yet it retains its finesse, which sometimes seems missing in places in 2012. This is pure and transparent, a wine that opens understated while eventually showing some notable grip and power on the finish as it warms and airs out. Aromatic and laced with minerally nuances, this fresh wine is never less than delicious. Let the tasty fruit dribble over your palate (and dont drink it too cold if you like that fruit). It deserves a little uptick because of its “more-ish qualities that is, youll want more. While I expect this to hold a bit, I cant imagine that it will ever be better than it will be this summer. There were 850 cases produced. Drink now-2015.”,,, (Jun 2013)

Producer
In the heart of Mantinia in Arcadia, Peloponesse, is a small winery owned by Leonidas Nasiakos, a second-generation winemaker and forth generation viticulturalist. His estate produces 6,500 cases of wine from the indigenous appellation varietal, Moschofilero. Moschofilero is a red grape that produces a beautiful light-bodied white wine that is fruity with pear, peach, melon, and citrus flavors and floral aromas of jasmine. Nasiakos’ vineyard is 2000 feet above sea level at the highlands of Mantinia. These very high elevations prolong the harvest time which ensures that sugar levels are at desirable levels. For Nasiakos, harvest time is in early October. Nasiakos has won numerous awards for his winemaking techniques and serves as the only consultant to the Greek Wine Federation for the Moschofilero varietal.
