Gai'A Estate Red Agiorgitiko Nemea 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

A long lasting full-bodied red wine made from the Agorgitiko grape. The GAI’A Estate red wine is a limited production wine, with less than 3,000 cases available in the US market. Once the fully ripe grapes are harvested, the must is fermented and aged for 12 month in new French oak casks. The GAI’A Estate red is bottled directly from the casks without chilling or filtration. The resulting wine is a big and powerful red wine with ripe fruit aromas. This wine can be drunk now but can be drunk over the next ten years. - 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
