2019 Ari's 'Retsini' Chardonnay

Canowindra, New South Wales

Organic Chardonnay from Wallington Wines. Destemmed and fermented on skins (skins of the grapes that is, for extra deliciousness) and pine resin for nine days. Pressed into old oak to rest for the winter. Retsina is a Greek white resinated wine, which has been made for at least 2,000 years. It produces a pretty unique flavor that's said to have originated from the use of Aleppo Pine resin during the winemaking process. Tony uses a small amount of resin as part of the process of making this wine, hard to detect, but definitely there. You'll have to try it to see if you like it. Pine, ripe lemon, orange juice, ginger and green mango vibes.

About the maker

Beginning as a family hobby, with the family having migrated from a small village in Greece, Ari longed for the wine he made and was drinking whilst growing up. So in 1985 began Ari's Natural Wine Co.

Ari, with son Tony, 30 years after making wine in Australia finally decided it was time to open this special family product to the public and Ari's Natural Wine Co was born. The focus for the family is on sourcing fruit from like-minded growers in the Southern Highlands, Goulburn and Murrumbateman. All the fruit is hand harvested and the whole process is undertaken by hand with no electricity or pumps used. It's underpinned by one simple saying 'nothing added, nothing taken away'. All the wines are wild fermented, unfiltered, unfined and no sulphur added at any stage.
