Moschatella 2018: Wine Advocate 2019: 91/100:”The 2018 Muscatel is a vigorous Muscatel with a lot of energy, and that means both aromatics and acidity. Gloriously fresh, its nose can make an impact from a foot away. It is not thick and dense, but there is plenty of grip on the finish. As it airs out and warms up, it also puts on weight and seems ever more impressive, a pretty serious white that will go well with relatively bland seafood dishes or on its own. This lively Muscatel will be a perfect wake-me-up in warm weather.
Jancis Robinson 2019: Foivos Muscatel 2018: 16/20: “ Delicately grapey nose but there's also something stony that gives it more finesse. Citrus on the palate, crisp and lively with green fruits to the finish and a lovely slight grip in the texture even though this is all free-run juice, apparently.
