Founded in 1979, Semeli is named after Semele, the mother of Dionysos: god of the grapevine, wine and joyous celebration. The estate is located in the picturesque village of Koutsi in the lush, upland valley of Nemea, characterized by bountiful vineyards perched on hillsides interspersed with ancient Cypress trees and olive groves. 250 acres are planted to the native grapes Moschofilero, Roditis, and Malagousia, along with international varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer. The state of the art, gravity flow winery and surrounding vineyards are situated at 2,165 feet in elevation; taking full advantage of the sloping terrain, Semeli forgoes mechanical methods that can damage the grapes and rather, relies on the force of gravity in the pressing, barreling and bottling processes. Although it lacks official certification, Koutsi is considered by local winemakers to be a ‘Cru’ due to its unique microclimate, low yielding vineyards and propensity to produce balanced, concentrated wines. Although Nemea is known primarily for red wines and the native Agiorgitiko in particular, we have a soft spot for the region’s fresh, aromatic and succulent white wines—like this delicious Moschofilero.

Comprised of 90% Moschofilero and 10% Roditis, the grapes were handpicked, then chilled to 45 °F in cold storage, followed by pneumatic press and vinified according to classic white wine vinification. Fermentation was at a controlled temperature of 60 °F in stainless-steel tanks.

Pale golden yellow color. Intense aromatics, with typical scents of fresh citrus and roses. The nose is echoed on the well-balanced palate, with bright acidity and wonderful minerality through the smooth, satisfying finish.
