Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Priya: Smells lke it could clean my toilet, leave it sparkling and smelling fresh! Tastes that way too. This is what one would call an 'acquired taste', and I'm not sure I want to acquire it. Pine resin is added to this greek wine and although this isn't a top of the line retsina at $8, it still tastes like a mouthful of mould. However, it does clean my sinuses! It's won many prestigious awards so what do I know. Just that I won't be having it a 2nd time! 70 pts

Alex: Wow Priya, sure it's a little different but it isn't that bad! Not at all I'd say, but an intriguing piece to say the least. Yes it smells like a saline and floral version of Pinesol, but there is real elegance and seamless texture to the palate that's growing on me. Whether you like it or not this is a well-made wine in my books, and I'm enjoying it. Just another expertly made example of the incredibly diversity of the worlds greatest libation! 88 pts
