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.
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.
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.
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.
A perfect match for Mediterranean dishes, seafood, poultry, pasta dishes with a light
sauce and fresh salads.
