Fancy doing your bit to help the Greek economy? These two should perk up your summer and hopefully swell the Hellenic coffers…

Monemvasia Asproudi 2013, Peloponnese, Greece (£11.78 Thedrinkshop.com)
Not all that much on first sniff, but opens up when you taste it to show off its just-ripe pear, nectarine and quince flavours, tinged with notes of fennel – think Jurançon but without the bite. Maybe could have a little more tang, but this grew on me. B(+)

Tetramythos Malagousia 2014, Achaia, Greece (£9.95 The Wine Society)
Fresh, young and grapey, like dry Muscat with an infusion of herbs, veers towards the exotically aromatic but stops short of slapper-dom, and there’s plenty of crunchy citrus and grape acidity to perk up the finish. B+
