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

The three varieties Syrah, Limnio (pronounced LIM-neeo) and Merlot were vinified according to the classic red fermentation methods. The wine was 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.
