Gaia Wines Wild Ferment Moschofilero by Gaia Peloponnese 2019

A fresh, complex and richly flavoured wine with
characteristic aromas of rose, jasmine and sweet lemon
underpinned by delicious buttery 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.


Vintage
The 2019 vintage experienced a rainy winter and spring, which built soil water
reserves to nourish the vines during the growing season. The summer was cooler
than average and as a result the phenological stages of development were
delayed. The harvest took place under good conditions and the grapes produced
during the 2019 vintage have an enhanced aromatic and acidity profile.


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.
