2020 Pinus (Retsina)
Retsina is a traditional greek wine, made by fermenting a neutral white wine with pine resin from the Aleppo pine. Traditionally this was used as an antioxidant, preservative and to stop other countries stealing their wine during times of war.
We import pine resin from Greece for this wine and infuse it into Swan Valley Chenin Blanc.
The result is a fresh, lifted white wine that is interesting yet delicious.
