Gai'A Assyrtiko Wild Ferment Santorini 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Assyrtiko Wild Ferment is made from 100% Santorini Assyrtiko whose fermentation takes place with only the naturally occurring yeasts found on the grapes. Once fermentation takes its course, 20% of the wine is aged in a blend of wood (oak, acacia, etc...) and then blended with 80% stainless steel fermented Assyrtiko. Wild Ferment is a gamble every year - the yeasts control the process and the final product is limited. Since its first release in 2008, Wild Ferment has brought Assyrtiko's potential to the next level. - Winery

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
