  • 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. 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 from two different wineries in the important wine-growing regions of Nemea and Santorini, they have earned a reputation for making cutting-edge wines. Gaia's main aim is to explore the boundaries and present the potential of the indigenous Greek grape varieties to wine enthusiasts worldwide.

The hand-picked grapes were cold macerated for 12 hours at controlled temperatures of 10°C. Fermentation occurred 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.

It is 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.

Winery

This wine is made from the island's indigenous variety, Assyrtiko, 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 and 250 metres. 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 porous volcanic soils with a high mineral content.
