Is Greek wine any good? What is Malagousia? Why does it have Alice in Wonderland’s White Rabbit on the label?
So many questions. In answer… Greek wine is stunning and could well be the next big thing, particularly dry whites like this. The grape variety Malagousia was virtually extinct until it was rediscovered in the 1970s; so this is super rare. And with regards to the rabbit, we have absolutely no idea. Some things are just mad and wonderful.
Made by a relatively young winery in Attiki – south-east of Athens – this smells sweet and fruity like blossom, peach, mango and ripe oranges. Then on the palate it completely changes and becomes refreshingly herbaceous, displaying thyme, bay leaf, pine needles and blanched almonds. Serve with seafood, asparagus, herby tagliatelle or risotto, tempura or feta cheese. Very little is made on account of the Mylonas Winery making eight wines off just twelve hectares, so don’t miss out. In the words of White Rabbit: “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”
