Retsina 2020

AOTON WINERYMESOGIA

Retsina is the most versatile wine in Greece commonly served during family meals. It requires special skills from the winemaker, however, to take it to another level. Made from Savatiano and Roditis grapes, this wine continues gloriously a thousand-year-old Greek ancient tradition of winemaking.

Andromachi’s Tasting Notes

On the palette aromas of fresh lemon, stone fruit, ginger, herbs and spices. A thick mouthfeel combined with full-flavoured, yet refined and quite delicious body, provides a unique taste. The pine-resin infused at the beginning of fermentation does not steal the show as it is perfectly integrated into the wine. Distinctly Greek!
