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
A skin contact maceration took place to extract aromas. Fermentation followed in
stainless steel at controlled temperatures of between 18-20°C. The wine was clarified
by gravity, then matured on the lees for several months with bâttonage. Fined with
bentonite, prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
Expressive aromas of exotic fruits combined with hints of pepper, orange, jasmine,
herbs and a touch of lemon. Reminiscent of a cross between Viognier and Grüner
Veltliner.
Serving Suggestion
A terrific companion for Asian cuisine, fresh shellfish, creamy-sauce based pasta
dishes, appetisers and salads with Greek Feta.
