Kechris Winery, Roza - Xinomavro Retsina
The name of the grape Xinomavro comes from the words xino (sour) and mavro (black). Xinomavro surprises with its performance and multi-faceted personality, yielding “vin de garde” reds, dynamic rosés, aromatic sparkling wines, and even idiosyncratic sweet wines.
The philosophy of Stelios Kechris Domaine is to give prominence to the typical characteristics of the wines with a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). This is the reason why Stelios Kechris is focused on the production of retsina, based on a radically new conception of the winemaking process.
The outcome of this process is a modern wine - a “front runner” in quality - that manages to balance the presence of the resin with the aromatic character of the wine.
Deep rosé colour with violet hues, typical of the Ksinomavro wines. The aromas of fresh wild strawberries balance with the refreshing notes of resin, which change between mastic and herbs, and come together on the smoked background of the barrel. The typical acidity of the Xinomavro variety adds a freshness to the wine and balances with its aromatic intensity before it ends in a long spicy finish.
