Like many Canadians I have fond memories of backpacking through Greece but my only wine memory is of Retsina. Suffice it to say it was not a pleasant memory. Decades later I’m adding a Greek wine to my website and this is an absolute pleasure. There’s just a handful available on B.C. wine shelves and this is the newest. You couldn’t ask for a better introduction to the wines of Greece. Wine geeks love using “approachable” in their reviews but I’m a simple man so I’m going with drinkable. As in, this wine is deserving of being added to your drinkable list. I loved the flavours of cherries and plums along with a hint of spice. I think it compares quite favourably to Rhone Valley wines. That means Mountain Fish is also very good friendly. From roast chicken to lamb chops this is a terrific match. Give it a try and I bet you’ll be back for more.
