(2013) Greece's Agiorgitiko (or St George) grape is one of its hero red varieties, and this wine from Nemea in the Peloponnese peninsula is fresh and relatively light with only 12.5% alcohol. It has a bold cherry/purple colour and attractive aromas that are at once cherry-bright and fruity, and gently earthy and sappy, not a million miles from a quality Beaujolais. A little cedar and spice suggests some ageing in older barrels perhaps. On the palate it does seem a touch lean, a touch underpowered, but that spicy cherry fruit and that green-tinged, olive character gives some real pleasure.
