Description of Kourtaki Retsina Of Attica

Kourtaki Retsina Of Attica (Savatiano)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Kourtaki Retsina Of Attica is a pleasing light golden yellow hue.
  • Nose: The fresh scent of pine woods, with subtle underlying notes of lemon and sage.
  • Mouth: A crisp citrus quality is complemented by notes of fresh thyme and other garden herbs, nectarine, and pine resin. Dry, well-balanced, and smooth with a gentle finish.

APPELLATION: Attica

VINEYARD: Kourtaki Wines, now known as Greek Wine Cellars, was founded in 1895. It crafts the most popular and recognizable brand of retsina both in Greece and globally. The company's name was changed to signal that it has long since branched out to produce other, also popular and high-quality, un-resinated wines.

GRAPES: Savatiano, Assyrtiko and Rhoditis.

PREPARATION: Kourtaki Retsina Of Attica is the essence of Greek holidays for people who have visited, and one of the most traditional drinks for those who live there. In the distant past, the pine character came from the resin used to seal amphorae; in modern times, Aleppo pine resin is introduced during fermentation.

PAIRING: Exceptionally and perhaps surprisingly versatile, Kourtaki Retsina Of Attica can be enjoyed as an apéritif, or as an accompaniment to both appetizers and main dishes, and even desserts. While it pairs very well with beef, lamb, pork, poultry, salmon, seafood, spicy foods, tuna fish, and vegetarian dishes. Is truly wonderful with calamari or grilled fish and salads, and as a pleasantly bitter contrast to sweet and fruity puddings.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 8-10°C

ALCOHOL: 11.5%

4 /5

- Retsina Kourtaki is clear, pale to golden-yellow in colour.
- A delicate aroma of pine on the nose.
- Fresh and rich on the palate, the wine develops the characteristics of the Savatiano grape, with the development of a piney flavour at the back of the throat.
- A nicely balanced, delicately flavoured retsina with a clean crisp finish.
