Gaia Wines Wild Ferment Moschofilero by Gaia Peloponnese 2021

A highly aromatic, complex and richly flavoured wine with
characteristic aromas of rose, orange blossom and pink
grapefruit underpinned by delicious lavender and herb
notes.
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 25-year old Moschofilero vines are grown in the village of Agiorgitika, on the plateau
of Mantineia, at an altitude of 600 to 800 metres. The vines flourish on the south-westerly
facing slopes, where they are planted in sandy-clay soils. The climate is cold, with
plentiful rains and snow during the winter, and relatively low temperatures with frequent
rain in the summer. The harvest takes place later in autumn as the grapes ripen slowly
due to this cooler microclimate, producing aromatic fruit with naturally balancing
acidity. The vines are trained according to the traditional methods of canopy
management, which suits the climate and terroir.
Winemaking
This is a wild ferment Moschofilero. The grapes underwent a pre-fermentation cold soak
on the skins for 48 hours. Spontaneous fermentation took place with wild yeasts. 25% of
the must was fermented at 28°C in barrels, of which 1/3 was French oak, 1/3 American
oak and 1/3 French Acacia; the remaining 75% fermented at low temperatures in
stainless steel tanks to retain the aromatic varietal characteristics. The wine was aged
on its lees in a combination of stainless steel tanks and wooden casks for four months,
with frequent bâtonnage to impart texture.
Tasting Note
A complex and lifted wine with characteristic aromas of rose, jasmine and sweet lemon
underpinned by delicious buttery notes. Nerve and tension perfectly balance the
aromatic and richly flavoured palate.
