Ktima Gerovassiliou Epanomi Malagousia 2020

'Floral and perfumed, with lots of fruit and an intense, long finish.' Gary Newborough, The Aristologist. 'Aromas of grapes, rose petals, fresh grass, pink grapefruit and apricot on the nose, with a fresh palate that has acidity to complement the fruit, and a long, fruity aftertaste. This would be a good match for sweet and sour dishes.' Filippo Pastorini, consultant.

A vibrant, aromatic wine showing jasmine and peach and a touch of mineral with a spicy and opulent mouthfeel.

Producer Note

Ktima Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Evangelos Gerovassiliou. He initiated the revival of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. This state of the art winery is now surrounded by 72 hectares of meticulously well cared vineyards on the slopes of Epanomi. Ktima Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high quality wines of international acclaim every year and his Malagousia remains the benchmark to this day.

Vineyard

At Ktima Gerovassiliou, the single, private vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm, which leads to constant research and experimentation with Greek and international varieties. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout the vine growing and vinification processes to produce high quality wines that carry all the distinct characteristics of the terroir of Epanomi. The climate is Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, tempered by sea breezes. The vineyard is surrounded on three sides by the sea, which is three kilometres away, while its west side faces the Thermaic Gulf, Mount Olympus and the beaches of Pieria. The vines are grown in soils which are mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks. It is rich in sea fossils, as the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits.

Winemaking

The Malagousia (pronounced Mah-lah-gou-ZYA) grapes were macerated on the skins to extract the desired level of aromas and flavours. The must was static settled and the majority was fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures of between 18 to 20°C; while 20% was vinified in seasoned French oak. Clarification took place by gravity. The wine was then matured on the lees for approximately two months with regular bâtonnage (lees stirring) which imparted texture and complexity.
