Some of my colleagues go wild over primo Greek reds that come through Vintages, but generally I find them to be tired, with a forced smoothness. But I’m enjoying this everyday guy that drinks a lot like a Pinot – seductive kisses of spicy/strawberry flavours. And a gentle touch. Of course I may be overstating, but I think you’ll find there’s lots of charm for the price. Lovely lazy-time drink, or partner for spicy/hot Tex/Mex foods. Agiorgitiko is a Greek red grape.
