Retsina Helexo represents the new era of winemaking in this traditional dry white wine. It is a dry, crisp and rich with lemon and smooth pine tasting notes, the long aftertaste is clean and fresh. This light- to medium-bodied retsina makes an ideal accompaniment to traditional Greek cuisine, of course, but also works with charcuterie, fried fish and spicy cuisine.
Retsina has been made for at least 2,000 years. Its unique flavor is said to have originated from the practice of sealing wine vessels, particularly amphorae, with Aleppo Pine resin in ancient times. EU treats the name Retsina under "Wines of Traditional Appellation" category.
