Gaia Assyrtiko Wild Ferment 2018

Gaia's Assyrtiko (Ah-SEER-tee-koe) vineyard is located in Santorini, where the terroir is recognised worldwide for its tremendous historical roots, as the vineyards in this area date back 3,000 years. Sourced from 80 year old vines all the grapes are hand-picked and only the free-run juice is used. Fermentation takes place in a combination of wood, stainless steel and ceramic vats and the wine was aged on its lees for up to six months with regular bâtonnage.

A highly complex, aromatic nose with citrus notes combining with floral hints from the acacia wood, vanilla, toasty oak and a touch of smoke. The layers of wild ferment envelop this precise and dry wine which has a mineral and salty complexity to the tangy finish. This is a truly unique wine.
