Troupis Arcadia Moschofilero Hoof & Lur 2019 $19.99
Moschofilero, like pinot gris and its Greek cousin, roditis, is a pink-skinned grape. If the juice sits briefly with the skins before vinification, it develops a pale salmon color, so let’s call Hoof & Lur a rosé. This wine, made without added yeast or filtration in the Peloponnese region of Greece, is fragrant and floral, bone-dry and lightly fruity. (DNS Wines/T. Elenteny Imports, New York)
