M&S Found Moschofilero Roditis

Who makes it?

M&S Found Moschofilero Roditis is a range of own brand wines and this pearl is one of them. You might not find it in your local store, I found it on-line. The wine is a blend of two Greek native grapes – Moschofilero and the less easily found Roditis. The vineyards are high altitude in the Peloponnese region of Greece. It is currently made by Semeli Estate who make the Semeli Thea who offer several versions of Moscholfilero. Including one which has lees contact.

How do they make it?

This M&S Found Moschofilero Roditis brings together these two grapes with the majority being Moschofilero. The focus is on being fruit forward and refreshing. 

What does it taste like?

It is richly perfumed as Moschofilero is a muscat style grape. A dry medium bodied by intense white wine with perfumed floral, citrus and peach fruit. Maybe a touch of saltiness. 

What to drink it with?

Drink with seafood such as BBQ octopus, salt and pepper squid or just fish and chips. Alternatively chicken will do very well. As does Saganaki / Haloumi or even feta salad.


Marinated feta or BBQ’d Saganaki / Haloumi
