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 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 in the region of Epanomi 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 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
A luscious blend of three Greek indigenous varietals, where ripe dark fruits combine
with notes of raisin, coffee, cacao and a hint of spice. Perfumed and polished, this
smooth, medium bodied wine has an abundance of mouthwatering, juicy plummy
fruit leading to a dry finish and is totally unique.
Serving Suggestion
A versatile red which accompanies hearty stews, savoury dishes and full-flavoured
game dishes.
