tropical fruits and green apple, precise, fresh and zesty
with a mineral backbone and lovely, long 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
The Assyrtiko grapes are grown in the in semi-mountainous limestone soils of Koutsi of
Nemea. The soils are rich in calcium carbonate with relatively neutral pH, and like most
limestone soils in Greece they have low organic matter content. The 15-year old vines
are planted at 600 metres altitude with a south-westerly orientation where the Assyrtiko
vines flourish in the free- draining soils. The winters are relatively cold and wet, with
temperatures that rarely fall below 0°C. Summers are hot, but without excessive
temperatures, however, a few thunderstorms in June are common. A long autumn
follows and the warm days and cool nights of September combined with typically dry
conditions, form ideal conditions for the maturation of the grapes. The vineyard is
carefully pruned very strictly to reduce the yields in order to produce fruit with
concentrated flavours.
Winemaking
The carefully selected grapes were chilled to 4°C before being destemmed and gently
pressed. The must was fermented with selected yeasts in temperature controlled
stainless steel tanks, to retain the purity of fruit. The wine was made without any oak
influence to preserve the fresh and varietal characteristics of the Assyrtiko grapes and
the distinctive expression of the Nemea terroir.
Tasting Note
