Gai'A Agiorgitiko Nemea 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Description: Having created two very different wines made from the world class Agiorgitiko grape variety our NOTIOS RED – a wine designed best enjoyed in its youth – and GAIA ESTATE – our made to last flagship we have now added : AGIORGITIKO by GAIA. This wine was the missing link of that admirable chain called Agiorgitiko The exceptional 2000 vintage produced high quality grapes harvested from hillside vineyards in NEMEA. The wine was aged in French oak casks. A structured wine, showing the intense fruit of the grape variety and well integrated oak. With proper cellar conditions it will evolve over the next four years becoming more complex and velvety. Grape Variety: Agiorgitiko Alcohol Level: 13,5 % vol. Acidity Level: 4,8 g/lit. PH: 375 Sugar: 2,1 g/lit

Gaia Estate:
Gaia Estate was founded in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos (Agronomist, University of Thessaloniki) and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos (Agronomist, University of Thessaloniki, Ph.D of Oenology, University of Bordeaux II).

Gaia Estate was founded in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos (Agronomist, University of Thessaloniki) and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos (Agronomist, University of Thessaloniki, Ph.D of Oenology, University of Bordeaux II). "Thalassitis", a Santorini A.O.C. white wine, inaugurated the company's first appearance, and quickly won a place in the Greek wine market. The 9,800 numbered bottles of Thalassitis in 1994, rapidly rose to more than 100,000 in 1999, all the while maintaining its commitment to quality. The White Notios "the Southerner" was first launched in 1995, and was immediately accepted by the wine-loving public, due to the excellent value it represented. In 1996 Gaia Estate acquired a private vineyard in Koutsi region of Nemea, along with a perfectly equipped winery of a total capacity of 3.000hl. From this new winery immerged four very distinct wines, all from the same indigenous grape variety, the Agiorgitiko. Starting from two vin de pays, the rose "Agiorgitiko 14-18h", and the red "Notios", an easygoing young wine in which the fruit and the softness of Agiorgitiko are beautifully expressed. Followed by the "Agiorgitiko by Gaia", a typical A.O.C. Nemea that can be cellared for 3-5 years and finally the "Gaia Estate", undoubtedly Gaia's flagship. A powerful red, single-vineyard wine that will fully develop its potential after 8 to 10 years of meticulous cellaring. A remarkable product from a remarkable company. Read less
