Gaia Notios White Moschofilero Roditis Pgi Peloponnese

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

The Moschofilero contributes a vibrant, floral flavour while the Roditis provides a smooth lemony character. 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. Selected grapes are destemed and crushed. Only free-run must is retained from Roditis grape variety. Fermentation (approx.20 days at 16° C) is followed by blending of Roditis & Moschofilero wines. Grapes : Moschofilero 60%, Roditis Pelponnese 40% Region : Greece / Peloponnese / Peloponnese PGI Maker : Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos Notes : Two traditional Greek varieties combine to give an elegant wine: the Moschofilero contributes a vibrant, floral flavour while the Roditis provides a smooth lemony character. Serve : Notios white is the perfect accompaniment to appetisers or light meals. ABV : 12.00%

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
