Gaia Wild Ferment Assyrtiko 2016

 

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.

Tasting Note: "...world class pedigree...salty, briny, a hint of lemon peel...a glittering, dazzling uber-dry white wine with wreaths of delicate smoke and a compelling salty core..." (The Wine Gang's)

Viticulture:        The native 80 year old Assyrtiko vines are carefully hand weaved into basket shapes and the grape bunches are coerced into growing inside the basket of the canes. The winds can be so fierce in this area that the basket vines are of great advantage.
