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.

Vintage

2017 was the coldest year experienced in the last 30 years in this region. A long, heavy winter was followed by a cool spring which provided some beneficial rain, which led to optimal growing and maturation conditions. The white wines are full bodied and have rich varietal aromas with good balancing acidity. The harvest started on 13th August and was completed on 8th September.

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. The floral variety of Viognier was initially planted in the estate in 1993, under the supervision of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The vineyard is cultivated in compliance with ecologically sustainable management practices.

Winemaking

The vinification started with skin contact followed by barrel fermentation in new French oak. The wine was matured on its fine lees to enhance the rich creaminess and texture.

Tasting Note

Benchmark Viognier with expressive aromas of exotic fruits combined with hints of jasmine, green tea. Perfumed and elegant.
