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.
Produced from grapes of exceptional maturity that are cultivated in a low-yielding,
non irrigated vineyard on the hills surrounding the Nemea wine region. Here, the soil
structure consists of a shallow clay layer of approximately 70 to 80cm, that lies upon
the lime soil. This type of clay retains humidity and releases it back to the vines when
required thus helping to naturally monitor the water stress in the vine, producing
concentrated flavours in the berries.
The grapes were carefully selected, destemmed and then crushed. Fermentation
took place over approximately 12 days at a controlled temperature of 28°C. The
wine did not got through a malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked twice for
clarification and matured in stainless steel to preserve the pure fruit characteristics.
The maturation lasted approximately 45 days.
