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
The Assyrtiko is hand harvested when ripe but undergoes a variation on the
traditional process. A portion of the grapes are sun dried in the strong Santorini
summer sun while another portion is dried in the shade to maintain relative fruit
freshness.
Winemaking
Once the berries have been sufficiently dehydrated from the sun, they were gently
pressed over many hours until the last drop of the richly concentrated must was
rendered. Yields at this stage were exceptionally low – less than 10 hl/ha. The must
was then placed in old casks where it underwent fermentation which stops once the
alcohol level reaches 13 to 14%, thus producing a naturally sweet wine. The wine
was then left to age in the fermentation casks previously used for white wine
production for at least 10 years. Vinsanto by Gaia was bottled without any fining or
filtration.
Tasting Note
Deep honey in colour, this is complex and full flavoured with notes of toffee and
caramel. A rich, luscious and beautifully balanced dessert wine.
Serving Suggestion
Enjoy this rare wine at 6 to 8°C with a beautiful dark chocolate dessert or cellar it for
future enjoyment.
