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. The grapes come from a vineyard in the
Asprokambos area of the Nemea PDO. The climate is Mediterranean, with mild, fairly
wet winters and long, hot and relatively dry summers. The 15 to 30 year old vines are
grown at altitudes ranging from 800 to 1,040 metres above sea level. The vines are
trained according to the double Cordon Royat method, with short pruning to two
buds. The soil consists of compact lime pebble conglomerates and marls with layers
of loose sediments. The grapes were carefully selected grapes and hand-picked at
optimum maturity.


Winemaking
The grapes were placed in cooling chambers where the temperature was rapidly
lowered from 28 to 30°C to just 4 to 6°C within a few hours. Having been chilled, the
grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold soaked at temperatures of 8°C for
approximately four to six hours (hence the name of the wine '4-6H' ). The entire
batch was then pressed and the free-run must and first press juice were retained.
Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 16 to
18°C and lasted for two weeks. The wine was gently fined, cold stabilised and
underwent minimal filtration prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
An appealing and vivid rosé with an intense and aromatic profile which hovers
between delicate floral notes of rose petals and fruity flavours of pomegranate and
strawberry. Vibrant with lifted crisp acidity and a refreshing finish.
