Tasting Notes

Critical Praise

89 points Treve Ring (Gismondi on Wine)

"Dimitrios Kioutsoukis and his family decided to give up city life to be more connected to nature, moving to Thessaloniki and planting 11 ha of organically farmed vines. All of their wines are low intervention, with native ferment, no sulphur additions and bottling without fining or filtration. Retsina is odd enough, yes, but have you ever had an entirely natural retsina? Right - no one has. The assyrtiko comes from the slopes of Kamara, Oraiokastro, Thessaloniki. The skins and must were macerated for one week before the juice was native fermented for one month, during which time pine resin from the mountains of Evia was added, following an ancient recipe. This then underwent a native ferment and full MLF before resting on full lees for 3 months, with no inputs or outtakes. Cloudy amber in the glass, this opens with the distinctive resinous pine sap, pitch, and bark on the nose, which continues to rule the palate, turning the quince / pear / orange, white florals into green oregano and thick, heady leaves. Though the palate is medium-bodied, the end is heady with a medicinal and bitter cherry note. This is a highly distinctive and ancient wine style, treated with care and respect, so if you're looking for a retsina, this is my recommended bottle."
