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
Agiorgitiko (pronounced Ah-yor-YEE-te-ko) is a fragrant red grape variety native to
Greece's Peloponnese Peninsula. The grapes are cultivated in a seven hectare
single estate vineyard in Koutsi, Nemea. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 550
metres above sea level. The 40 year old vines are trained according to the Spur
Cordon method and the yields are kept low at 45 to 48 hectolitres per hectare. The
soils have a layer of approximately 75cm of clay over a bed of limestone. The grapes
are manually harvested.


Winemaking
The Agiorgitiko grapes were cold soaked and macerated for approximately 20 days,
to ensure the desired levels of colour, flavour and aromatic extraction. Fermentation
took place with selected yeasts in traditional oak fermenters at 22 to 28°C. The wine
went through 100% malolactic conversion, which was followed by 18 to 20 months’
maturation in mostly new French oak casks. The wine was bottled without fining or
filtration.
