A lovely combination of exotic and floral tones with a
zesty grapefruit , green apple and peach kernel
character, and a very refreshing zesty 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 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 fermentation 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
This fusion of traditional Greek varieties results 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.
