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 privately owned vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm. The soils are mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks, but rich in sea fossils, as the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits. Constant research and experimentation is taking place with Greek and international varieties, both well and lesser known ones. New technological advances blend with traditional practices throughout the vine growing and vinification processes, to produce high quality wines, which reflect the distinct characteristics of the terroir of Epanomi. Winemaking
Skin contact took place to extract the desired level of aromatics. Part of the must was fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures of between 18 to 20°C; and part was vinified in seasoned French oak. Clarification took place by gravity. The wine was then matured on the lees for a few months with regular lees stirring or 'bâtonnage', prior to being fined with bentonite. Tasting Note
Wonderfully expressive and complex aromas of exotic fruits combine with notes of pepper, orange, jasmine, herbs and lemon. On the palate it is rich and harmonious with a spicy, mouthwatering finish. Serving Suggestion
