What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

World Cup Match-Up: Greece Beats Nigeria

Earlier today Greece scored its first-ever World Cup goal. Then it scored another, securing what would also, ultimately, be their first-ever World Cup victory over Nigeria, 2-1.

While we have a much more in-depth post on Greek wines scheduled, you should join in celebrating their victory this weekend with a bottle of bubbly, and not just any bubbly, but Domaine Tselepos Amalia Brut ($23.99).

Originally from Cyrpus, Domaine Tselepos owner Yiannis Tselepos was trained in oenology at the famed University of Dijon in France, graduating in 1978. He worked around Burgundy for the next couple of years, picking up knowledge that would turn him into a pioneer of the Greek wine renaissance when he returned home.  He settled in the Peloponnese where he has been making wine ever since.

This sparkler is made in the traditional method (methode champenois) entirely from Moschofilero from a single vineyard with redding clay soils. It has a uniquely floral nose that is distinctly Moschofilero, with hints of honey and crisp yellow plum on the nose and palate and freshly-baked bread. Refreshing, clean and very festive, it's a great tipple even if you're not watching soccer.
