2022 Palivou Estate 'Anemos' Moschofilero Roditis, Peloponnese, Greece - The  Peloponnese Peninsula is a large landform on the southern edge of continental Greece.  Covered in mountains, rugged plateaus and valleys, the area has an abundance of meso-climates and terroirs suitable for premium viticulture.  The modern Peloponnese wine industry began to grow following the end of World War II, and today is one of the most productive in Greece, containing 7 PDO level appellations and 17 regional appellations.  Palivou Estate is a multi generational family estate in the ancient Nemea region.  The modern estate was started in the early 1990s and are certified organic, also utilizing biodynamic practices.  Anemos is a blend of 70% Roditis and 30% Moschofilero from vines planted in 1987, in calcareous soil at an elevation of 420 meters.  It is a fruity wine with aromas of apples, pears, pineapple, lemon blossoms and a hint of white pepper with a pleasantly balanced light body with refreshing acidity and lingering fruit flavors.  It pairs well with dishes featuring ricotta, seared scallops, and Greek Salad.
