Ktima Gerovassiliou Epanomi Viognier 2021

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. The floral variety of Viognier was initially planted on 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
Made with minimal intervention, vinification started with skin-contact maceration to
extract flavours and aromatics at controlled temperatures of 8°C. The grapes were then
barrel fermented in French oak, of which 20% was new, 80% was older, to impart subtle
complexity. The wine was matured on its fine lees for approximately four months with
regular bâtonnage to enhance the rich creaminess and texture.
Tasting Note
Benchmark Viognier with expressive aromas of exotic fruits, peach and pear combined
with delicate hints of jasmine. Perfumed and elegant with a subtle smoky accent on
the wonderfully long finish.
