▷ All Greek to you?

Assyrtiko’,  Moschofilero,  Malagousia, Agiorgitiko,  Mavrodaphni, Xinomavro’….   if it’s all Greek to you,  it was certainly was for the Wine … and More Group too.
Little did the Group know that all these wonderful Greek grapes, and wines, are available right here, in Crouch End. It took just a little inspiration, a little guidance and members were off with their wine shopping list.  And what a discovery it was for everyone.  They all loved these gorgeous wines, introducing welcome new tastes to their palate,  with Marks & Spencer scoring high for their newly introduced Found range which features a delicious Moschofilero & Roditi, and Waitrose’s  Atma Assyrtiko from north-western Greece, with its minerality and live citrus flavours,  made by the esteemed winemaker Apostolos Thymiopoulos. And whilst Retsina has come a long way and it’s now a truly lovely wine (Kourtaki Retsina is available from Sainsbury’s at around £6) there was so much to explore and enjoy.  On the night, we said Yassas! That’s Cheers!  in Greek and toasted a new taste sensation.
