A unique wine with an intense and floral aroma of pine
needles combined with wild herbs, refreshing and tangy

Producer Note
One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution Gaia Estate was established
in 1994 by Greek winemakers Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Operating
two different wineries they make cutting edge wines in both Nemea and Santorini.
Gaia's main aim is to present the potential of the indigenous Greek grape varieties to
wine enthusiasts worldwide.
Vineyard
This Retinitis Nobilis Retsina is pronounced: Rit-tin-EE-tis NOB-bil-is Ret-SEE-na. The
Traditional Appellation for Retsina can be made anywhere in Greece, typically from
Savatiano, which is a high yielding, neutral flavoured white variety. Ritintis Nobilis
represents a courageous reinterpretation of the oft-maligned Retsina style and is made
from high quality Roditis grapes. This Ritintis Nobilis cuvée is made from low yielding
Roditis vines, which are grown in cool climate, north facing hillside vineyards located in
the village of Koutsi in Korinthia. This area is renowned for producing high quality grapes
which translate into elegant wines with a smooth, lemony character.
Winemaking
The Roditis grapes were meticulously selected, harvested and pressed immediately on
arrival at the winery. Classic white vinification followed with fermentation taking place in
temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A carefully calculated quantity of resin from
the Pinus Halepensis variety was added to the must, imparting the resulting wine with its
distinctive flavour. When fermentation had finished the wine was drawn off, leaving the
resin remaining at the bottom of the tank, resulting in a wine in perfect balance.
