Gaia Wines Nemea Agiorgitiko By Gaia 2019

A smooth and concentrated red packed with ripe red fruit
flavours combined with dessicated coconut and herbal
nuances through to a spicy finish.
Producer Note
One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution Gaia Estate was established
in 1994 by Greek winemakers Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Operating
two different wineries they make cutting edge wines in both Nemea and Santorini.
Gaia's main aim is to present the potential of the indigenous Greek grape varieties to
wine enthusiasts worldwide.
Vintage
The 2019 vintage experienced a rainy winter and spring, which built soil water reserves
to nourish the vines during the growing season. The summer was cooler than average
and as a result the phenological stages of development were delayed. The harvest
took place under good conditions and the grapes produced during the 2019 vintage
have an enhanced aromatic and acidity profile.
Vineyard
Agiorgitiko (pronounced Ah-yor-YEE-te-ko) is a fragrant red wine grape native to
Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. The vineyards are located near to Koutsi, a semimountainous village. The vineyards here are known for their chalky soils and good
drainage. The cool temperatures, the ideal sun exposure and the steep inclination of
the vineyards combine to produce lower yields than other parts of Nemea, but the
berries have excellent concentration of flavour.
Winemaking
Selected grapes were hand-picked, destemmed and crushed, followed by a cold soak
for approximately 48 hours at 10°C. The must was inoculated with selected yeasts and
fermented for approximately two weeks at temperatures between 22 to 26°C, with
regular pump overs and some plunging of the cap. Malolactic conversion followed
and the wine was aged in oak casks for 12 months, of which 90% was French oak (10%
new) and 10% was American oak (10% new). The wine was cold stabilised prior to
being cellared.
Tasting Note
Agiorgitiko is the red grape of Nemea, making silky smooth, fruit-packed reds with a
velvety finish. This cuvée shows intense aromatic finesse evolving from ripe berries and
gooseberry through to caramel and discreet oak nuances. Soft tannins underline a
rich, well structured velvety body.
