No of cases

Perfumed and polished, this is a smooth and velvety wine with bags of black cherry fruit underlined by vanilla and coconut notes.
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 70 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 vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm, which leads to constant research and experimentation with Greek and international varieties, both well and lesser known ones. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout the vine growing and vinification processes to produce high quality wines cultivated exclusively in the privately owned vineyard, that carry all the distinct characteristics of the terroir of Epanomi. The soils here are mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks, but rich in sea fossils, since the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits. Winemaking
The grapes were fermented in small oak casks, where malolactic fermentation ensued. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. Tasting Note
