Reviews and Ratings

Retsina is an ancient and traditional wine from Greece. It's history dates back to the first century Roman times. In ancient times, winemakers of the day macerated native Greek grape varieties in decanted seawater. There are several claims as to why this unique and traditional white wine was sealed in amphorae with pine resin -- the first is that it was to prevent spoilage in the less-than-impermeable amphorae vessels. Other claims were that the pine resin was so pungent that it prevented marauding roman armies from pillaging the wines, but the flavour of the wine became popular. Modern-day Retsina can be made from several native grape varieties. Kechris Kechribari 2017 is produced from the Roditis grape giving the wine floral, green herb, earthy and salty flavours on the palate as well as pine aromas. Chill this 500ml-size bottle of this fresh and crisp, dry white wine and enjoy it with crispy calamari. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
