Kamara Estate "Nimbus" Retsina Greece (Orange Wine)

SKU #1363008 90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark By choosing assyrtiko, a powerful grape, and leaving it on the skins for a week, Dimitrios Kioutsoukis turned out a wine that meets the power of the pine resin head-on. Fermented with ambient yeasts and mellowed in old barrels, the wine is more spicy than piney, its notes of mint, roasted fennel seeds and camphor mingling with peach and orange. Skin tannins give the wine grip, making this a Retsina for rich dishes, like pork belly bo ssam. (TT) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

K&L Notes

Is it Retsina or is it Orange Wine? A bit of both actually. This all natural 100% Assyrtiko sees maceration on the skins and native yeast fermentation where the highest quality pine resin is added. Aged on the the fine lees for three months, it is bottled with no filtration or fining and no S02 additions. The nose is classically orange with citrus peel and quince notes and the pine adds subtle herbal nuances that all work beautifully together. Not your average Retsina or Orange wine but definitely something special to behold. (Keith Mabry, Greek Wine Buyer) *Orange Wine* *Natural Wine*
