Ah, retsina, the notorious pine-resin wine that has been many peoples' first encounter with Greek wine. Until recently, its reputation has been sullied because of industrial methods to make it as cheaply as possible. The grape used for most retsina is Savatiano, which is the most-planted grape in Greece. It turns out, though, if Savatiano is farmed at more moderate yields and pine resin is added in a more subtle way, retsina can be interesting, even deliciously refreshing. This version from the Georgas Family is just that. 

Georgas is located in Attica, not far from Athens, where most retsina is produced. This Black Label retsina has 10 days of skin contact and zero sulfur addtions. The pine is noticeble but it's very fresh, recalling a meadow or a rainy Pacific Northwest afternoon rather than, um, floor cleaner. Lifted and energetic, it's got some subtle honeysuckle, cedar, and pilsener notes. Make like a Greek fisherman and down this after a day out at sea with some fried seafood and a squeeze of lemon.
