Wine & Spirits 92 points - 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..August/2018
A new version of the traditional retsina. With a fine aroma of pine and a strain of lemon. Blond in colour and beautifully balanced, this wine speaks to the finest palate. The perfect accompaniment to Mediterranean hors d’oeuvres, seafood and fish.
