Hoof & Lur is a reference to the god Pan and his musical instrument. This wine is part of the low intervention range, with lower SO2 and no fining of filtration carried out. The colour is somewhere between pink and orange. The nose is beguiling, showing notes of loukoumi, rosehip and rose petals. Bright and vivacious on the palate, with that salty acidity Moschofilero is known for. Juicy flavours of pink grapefruit and strawberry, with a hint of basil sorbet.
Troupis Winery is based in Mantinia, in the Peloponese. PDO Mantinia is a high altitude plateau at 660 meters above sea-level, though some vineyards go as high up as 800 meters. The region is surrounded by mountains, and has a Mediterranean climate with continental influences. It is one of the coldest PDO zones in Greece with plenty of rain and snow here. Cooler temperatures result in a slow and even ripening of the grapes and a late harvest, which usually takes place in mid-October. The indigenous and star grape of the region is the pink-skinned Moschofilero, which is a very versatile grape that can make lightly aromatic whites, roses, skin contact wines and even sparkling.
