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-ofthe-art winery is now surrounded by 80 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 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
The Malagousia (pronounced Mah-lah-gou-ZYA) grapes were macerated on the skins
to extract the desired level of aromas and flavours. The must was static settled and the
majority was fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures of between 18 to
20°C; while 20% was vinified in seasoned French oak. Clarification took place by gravity.
The wine was then matured on the lees for approximately two months with regular
bâtonnage (lees stirring) which imparted texture and complexity.
Tasting Note
Expressive aromas of white pear, peach and lemon zest combine with floral hints.
Opulent, with harmonious balance the palate offers a spicy, fresh and mouthwatering
finish enveloped in a delicious flinty, mineral character.
