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

2018 was a challenging vintage with difficult climatic conditions. As a result, the yields were lower than previous years. Vigilance in the vineyards and winery ensured the wines have retained the high quality and varietal characteristics.

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.

Winemaking

Notios in Greek means “The Southerner”. 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 fermentation was complete, the young wine was cold stabilised. The wine was made in an unoaked style to preserve the purity of fruit.

Tasting Note

A youthful style of wine with a refreshing, velvety texture and intense, persistent aromas of ripe red and black fruit, with soft tannins that underlie a well-structured palate.
