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
A youthful and refreshing Assyrtiko, with lifted citrus fruits, exuberant tropical fruits and
a touch of honeysuckle. Fresh and zesty with a mineral backbone and lovely, crisp
finish.
