Tsantali 2011, Cabernet Sauvignon, Greece - I Blame The Wine
Organic Tsantali Cabernet Sauvignon Greece

Tsantali 2011, Cabernet Sauvignon, Greece

The full name of the wine is Organiki Tsantali, Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Greece and I sourced it from Waitrose.

The label says it all – it is organic, Greek and made from Cabernet Sauvignon (which is somewhat unusual as they normally prefer to work with the local varieties).

The flavours are recognisable and full of black fruit, hints of mint and other herbs. The aromas are quite tender, but the first sip opens up a powerful mix of flavours, which is also round, smooth and a little bit sweetish.
They are proud of no harmful chemicals added (yet there are sulphites there), and it will go down a treat with your traditional bacon and mushroom casseroles, or, as I have it just now, with the warming steak pie.

The wine is slightly more mature than your usual organic wines that are now on the shelves, and also a bit more on alcoholic strength at 14%.

My Organic wine rating is 25/35.
