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.
Vineyard
Agiorgitiko (pronounced Ah-yor-YEE-te-ko) is a fragrant red wine grape native to
Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. This wine is produced from grapes of exceptional
maturity that are cultivated in a low-yielding, non irrigated vineyard on the hills
surrounding the Nemea wine region. Here, the soil structure consists of a shallow clay
layer of approximately 70 to 80cm, that lies upon the lime soil. This type of clay retains
humidity and releases it back to the vines when required thus helping to naturally
monitor the water stress in the vine, producing concentrated flavours in the berries.
Notios in Greek means 'The Southerner'.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked into 20 kilogram containers and chilled to 4°C prior to
vinification. The grapes were then destemmed cold soaked for 48 hours in the
fermentation vats at low temperatures fluctuating between 8°C to 12°C. Fermentation
took place with selected yeasts and lasted between seven to 10 days at controlled
temperatures which did not exceed 25°C. When malolactic conversion was complete,
the young wine was cold stabilised. The wine was made in an unoaked style to
preserve the purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
Notios ('The Southerner') is a youthful style of wine with a refreshing, velvety texture and
intense, persistent aromas of ripe red and black fruit. Soft tannins underlie a wellstructured palate, through to a delicious, vibrant finish.
