Two Greek White Wines


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+
