Paterianakis 2021 Moschato Spinas (Crete)
Crete’s special take on Muscat grows especially well in Chania, the source of this wine. A small-berried clone gives rise to a faintly minty, pristinely clear wine that reminds one of the beloved style we embrace in Styria and parts of Germany, improbable though that might seem. Muscat-lovers should rejoice!

Notes from the Producer: In the ancient times it was called bee grape, because the bees used
to gather around the baskets at harvest time, probably due to its
sweet and intense Aromas.
