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 Assyrtiko (pronounced Ah-SEER-tee-koe) and Malagousia (Mah-lah-gou-ZYA)
grapes underwent skin contact maceration to extract aromas. Fermentation followed in
stainless steel at controlled temperatures of between 18-20°C. The wine was clarified by
gravity and then matured on the lees for several months. Gently fined prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
Expressive aromas of exotic fruits combine with hints of pepper, orange, jasmine, herbs
and a touch of lemon. Lively, attractive and vivacious, with a rich and beautifully
balanced palate.
