Producer Note
Ktima Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Evangelos Gerovassiliou. He initiated the
revival of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. This
state of the art winery is now surrounded by 74 hectares of meticulously well cared
vineyards on the slopes of Epanomi. Ktima Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high
quality wines of international acclaim every year and his Malagousia remains the
benchmark to this day.
Vineyard
At Ktima Gerovassiliou, the single, private 74 hectare vineyard is cultivated with great
care and enthusiasm, which leads to constant research and experimentation with
Greek and international varieties. New technological advances blend well with
tradition throughout the vine growing and vinification processes to produce high
quality wines that carry all the distinct characteristics of the terroir of Epanomi. The
climate is Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, tempered by sea
breezes. The vineyard is surrounded on three sides by the sea, which is three
kilometres away, while its west side faces the Thermaic Gulf, Mount Olympus and the
beaches of Pieria. The vines are grown in soils which are mainly sandy with a few
clayey substrates and calcareous rocks. It is rich in sea fossils, as the surrounding hilly
area was formed by sea deposits.
Winemaking
Vinified according to the classic red fermentation methods and then aged in French
oak barrels for approximately one year.
Tasting Note
Concentrated and elegant, with a pronounced bouquet of black fruits, ripe plum
and wild cherry, complemented by a hint of spice. On the palate the wine offers
gentle tannins enhanced with great fruit intensity, yet round and harmonious with a
long, spicy and persistent finish.
Serving Suggestion
Particularly well suited with roast pork, poultry, richly flavoured meat and game
dishes. A perfect companion for many savoury dishes and matured cheeses.
