Gaia Wines Thalassitis Santorini Assyrtiko 2020

An intense dry wine with a strain of flinty saltiness on the
mouthwatering, bone-dry 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.
Vineyard
This wine is made from the island's indigenous variety Assyrtiko (pronounced Ah-SEERtee-koe) which is renowned for combining full flavoured maturity while retaining
considerably high acidity. The grapes are produced exclusively from vineyards in the
Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions, at elevations of between 50 to 250 metres above
sea-level. The vines are between 70 to 80 years old and produce a particularly low yield
of between 18 to 25 hectolitres per hectare, which in turn produces concentrated
juice. The vines are cultivated in volcanic soils which are porous with a high mineral
content.
Winemaking
The hand-picked grapes were cold macerated for a period of 12 hours at controlled
temperatures of 10°C. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 16 to 18°C with
selected yeasts. The wine did not undergo malolactic conversion, to retain its
characteristic crisp style. This wine was produced in an unoaked style preserving its
freshness and purity of fruit. It spent four months in stainless steel tanks on its lees with
frequent bâtonnage or lees stirring, imparting texture and complexity.
Tasting Note
A bone dry wine, with an explosive mineral core surrounded by delicate notes of fresh
lemon zest and floral hints. Refreshing with a crisp, mineral finish.
