RETSINA

APPELLATION: Appellation by tradition

TYPE: White dry resinated wine

VARIETAL COMPOSITION: Roditis


Tasting Note

Bright pale yellow color with light golden hues. The nose is vibrant with aromas of citrus, pear and apple, as well as elegant fresh pine resin.  Mouthwatering with a dry and refreshing palate that leads to a line-and-pine, saline finish.

  • After picking and pressing the grapes, the clarified must is tank fermented at controlled temperature 18-20ο C. Small quantities of pine resin are added to the fermenting must. The concentration of resin in the wine is 1-2 o/oo (parts per thousand). At the end of fermentation the resin is removed from the wine. No oak.

  • Ideal for pan-fried fish (red mullet, sardines etc), Greek salad, dishes rich in olive oil, feta cheese, spit-roasted meat (“gyros”) and traditional “tzatziki” (yoghurt-based dip with garlic, cucumber and olive oil).

    Best served slightly chilled (10-12o C).
