External Reviews for Kourtaki Retsina of Attica
A clear pale to golden yellow color. A delicate aroma of pine on the nose. Fresh and rich on the palate, the wine develops the characteristics of the Savatiano grape, with the development of a piney flavor at the back of the throat. A nicely balanced, delicately flavored retsina with a crisp, clean finish. A wine to accompany food, especially strong flavored and spicy dishes. The Greeks consume it with their starters (mezes), but it can also accompany white meat and fish dishes.
So light on the resin it’s almost a suggestion more than a flavor, this is clean and fresh, the flavors riding out on a crisp apple fruitiness. For a spread of mezes, from tzatziki and babaganoush to stuffed mussels.
This retsina offers a traditional style with its nose of citrus and pine resin and dry, slightly spicy flavors. A bigger style that would pair well with spicy Chinese or Indian cuisine.
There’s a reason Kourtaki’s Retsina is so popular in Greek restaurants in America: it has a succulent, almost salty edge that whets the palate for food, bright and fresh as a sea breeze. Bring on the fried calamari.
