Wine & Spirits Review
Vassilis Papagiannakos takes a light hand with his Retsina, choosing a base of clean, fresh savatiano and adding only a small amount of fresh pine resin. The result is a wine with lemon-pulp juiciness and the fresh scent of a pine forest after a rain. It feels buoyant and elegant, with enough complexity and structure to stand up to fish with chermoula sauce.
This well-made retsina maintains a beautiful balanced of pine aroma with a strain of lemon citrus. The wine is pale yellow in color, and showcases the rich and unique flavors of this classic Greek wine with a refined style that will satisfy both fans and newcomers of retsina.
Food Pairing: The refreshing profile and traditional pine flavors of the wine make it an ideal accompaniment for Mediterranean hors d'oeuvres, seafood and fried fish.
