Modern Greek - Moi, Je M'en Fous

Three wines from Domaine Messenicolas, Greece - via The Greek Delicatessen

Roughly translating as a coarse Gallic shrug, Moi Je M'en Fous is a range of three wines from Domaine Messenicolas in Karditsa in central mainland Greece.

The wines are available in the UK via either The Greek Delicatessen, or if you are in Cambridge, The Olive Grove restaurant.

With edgy name and distinctive labels, you might think this is style over substance - but these wines have won numerous international awards and are definitely worth seeking out. 

White 100% Malagousia; fresh white peach and ripe, baked apple fruit sprinkled with sweet spice; flawlessly adept and rounded. Very Good 

Red 100% Limnionas fresh red-plum fruit notes with some pepperiness and a substantial minerality. Very Good. 

Rose 100% Muscat Hamburg; translucent pomegranate red. Musky red berry aromas and fresh, pure fruit. Long and precise. Very Good.

Match with salmon or prawns.

They retail for around £12; provided for review.
