Music Intro


RT: Hello and Welcome to CorkRules!

I’m your host Robert Tas along with Tina Johansson, WSET Diploma Graduate and Michelin restaurant sommelier.


Hi Tina, thanks for being back with us on another episode of CorkRules, - a podcast where we help simplify and demystify the wine lists at some of your favorite restaurants. We talk with certified sommeliers and wine professionals who point out interesting bottles, classic food and wine pairings, hidden gems, value wines, or splurge wines that will take your dining experience over the top.


TJ: Thank you, Robert, great to be here.


RT: So today we’re back in London at 10 Greek Street, a neighborhood restaurant in Soho. Here, they serve smaller dishes based on seasonal produces and the wine list is short, but you can get most wines by the glass as well! That always makes a place extra welcoming to me.


TJ: Yeah, that’s always a plus! Also, I know they have a so called little black book, it’s their hand written list with special bottles. I would ask for that one for sure, and so should all wine lovers.


RT: So, what do you think about the food? I see some really tasty dishes in there.


TJ: Well, I do to! It strikes me as a typical modern London restaurant with the local produces mixed in with classic ingredients from the rest of Europe. I’m really intrigued by the buttermilk fried cod cheeks and the n’duja on toast. And of course they serve chicken liver parfait with pickles, one of my favorite wine bar snack.


RT: That all sounds amazing. And the wine list then, what’s the focus here?


TJ: The list is short, but like you said almost all listings are available by the glass which is a great idea. And if you’re looking for something special, once again, their black book is a good place to dive into. But in general the list is very varied with wines from most European countries with a few New World bottles as well. Even though the list is short, there are many different styles of wine, so something for every wine drinker. My eyes goes directly to the 2021 Ministry of Clouds Grenache from McLaren Vale in Australia. Beautiful and elegant Grenache filled with red fruit aromas.


RT: Oh how fun! Don’t mind if I do. Sounds like a treat together with many of the smaller dishes here. And on the white wine side, anything unique a wine lover must try?


TJ: Yeah, if you’re in the mood to try something special I’ll recommend the 2021 Johanneshof Reinisch Rotgipfler, it’s from Austria and the grape variety, Rotgipfler that is, is hard to come by. It’s almost exclusively grown in the Thermenregion just south of Vienna. It’s quite aromatic and fruit driven and a wine you can drink as it is – no food needed.


RT: Sounds like a fun bottle, not a grape variety you see on a wine list often. 10 Green Street really sounds like a creative place to visit. So, if we’re finishing with something a bit more extravagant to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, what would be your bottle of choice?


TJ: How about with an English sparkling wine while we’re here? They have the 2012 prestige Cuvee from Nyetimber called 1086, and it’s called the first prestige cuvee ever made in England. I’d say that’s perfect for celebrating! A bit richer than many other sparkling wines from here but still with the characteristic fresh and sharp acidity.


RT: Definitely! British Fizz is really coming along and are very good these days. Well, thank you for being back with us Tina. To our audience, thank you all for joining us here on CorkRules.
