La Tour Melas D'Achinos Bottling Note

La Tour! Idylle! La France Profunde! At first glance you'd think this wine was French but look closer and you will see that it's actually Greek. Sacre bleu! But there is a French angle as the estate was planted in 2011 by Kyros Melas with French varieties (mainly Merlot and Cabernet Franc) and his reds are very much inspired by the likes of Pomerol and St. Emilion.

The rosé is also made from some French grapes, Syrah and Grenache, with a native Greek variety, Agioritiko. Altogether now: I-Your-Itiko. Wasn't that easy? It means St. George in Greek. Whereas traditional Greek rosé is a deep pink, this is made in a Provençal style, which is so pale it's almost a white wine. Just the thing with some taramasalata and grilled squid.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Red berry fruit, strawberries and cherries, with some orange and a herbs including thyme and rosemary. Delightful served chilled on a hot day.
