mouthwatering finish.
Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
This wine is made from the island's indigenous variety Assyrtiko, which is renowned for
combining full flavoured maturity whilst retaining considerably high acidity. The
grapes are produced exclusively from vineyards in the Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos
regions, where the vines are almost 80 years old and have a particularly low yield
which does not exceed 25 hectolitres per hectare. The vines are cultivated in
volcanic soils which are porous with a high mineral content.
Winemaking
The hand picked grapes were carefully selected, destemmed and then crushed.
The free run juice was fermented in temperature controlled tanks with selected
yeasts. This wine was produced in an unoaked style in order to retain its freshness
and purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
Explosive minerality with fresh lemon zest on the nose, crisp acidity on the palate and
underlying floral notes. Refreshing with a lingering finish and a slight hints of saltiness.
Serving Suggestion
An excellent partner to seafood, fish, shellfish or lamb with lemon.
