Gaia Agiorgitiko 2020

Gaia Agiorgitiko bottle of wine
Tasting Notes: 

From Greek winemaker Gaia, the 'Agiorgitiko by Gaia' offers aromas of ripe berries and gooseberry through to caramel and discreet oak nuances. Soft tannins underline a rich, well structured velvety body.

Agiorgitiko is a fragrant red wine grape native to Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. The vineyards are located near to Koutsi, a semimountainous village in Nemea. The vineyards here are known for their chalky soils and good drainage. The cool temperatures, the ideal sun exposure and the steep inclination of the vineyards combine to produce lower yields than other parts of Nemea, but the berries have excellent concentration of flavour.

Wine Making Notes: 

Selected grapes were hand-picked, destemmed and crushed, followed by a cold soak for approximately 48 hours at 10°C. The must was inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented for approximately two weeks at temperatures between 22 to 26°C, with regular pump overs and some plunging of the cap. Malolactic conversion followed and the wine was aged in oak casks for 12 months, of which 90% was French oak (10% new) and 10% was American oak (10% new). The wine was cold stabilised prior to being cellared.
