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.
This wine is produced from the Agiorgitiko variety, which is 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 vines are trained according to the Spur
Cordon method and the yields are kept low. The soils have a layer of approximately
75cm of clay over a bed of limestone. The grapes are manually harvested once they
have reached the optimum level of maturity.
The Agiorgitiko grapes were cold soaked and macerated for a lengthy period, to
ensure the desired levels of colour, flavour and aromatic extraction. Following
fermentation, the wine was matured in oak for a minimum of 20 months, of which
90% French oak (50% new) and 10% American (50% new). This wine was bottled
without fining or filtration and received a further 12 months bottle ageing.
