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 Moschofilero grapes (pronounced Mosho-FEEL- ero) come from the mountainous
vineyards of Arcadia region, where the 15 year old vines are grown at an altitude of
700 metres and produce grapes with fruity characters and crisp acidity. The Roditis
variety is grown at 900 metres altitude in upland Corinth, in a microclimate which
imparts elegance to the resulting wine. The vines yield approximately 75 hectolitres per
hectare and are grown in soils which are mainly limestone clay. The Assyrtiko grapes
come from the slopes of Koutsi, which are planted at 600 metres above sea-level with a
southwesterly orientation. The vines are 15 years old and are cultivated in marl on
limestone soils.
Winemaking
The carefully selected grapes were chilled to 4°C before being destemmed and
pressed. Each variety was vinified separately with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks
at 16°C, to preserve the varietal characters. Only the free-run must was retained from
the Roditis grape variety. Fermentation lasted for approximately 20 days and the wines
did not go through malolactic conversion resulting in a crisp style of wine. The Roditis,
Moschofilero and Assyrtiko wines were expertly blended to create a wine with perfect
balance.
Tasting Note
Notios (The Southerner) is a fusion of traditional Greek varieties resulting in a light, fresh
and elegant wine. The Moschofilero contributes vibrant, floral flavours, the Roditis
imparts a smooth citrus zesty character and the Assyrtiko delivers wonderful complexity,
crisp acidity and a mineral finish.
