Gaia Assyrtiko Wild Ferment 2021

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.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.

Really loved this wine. We found it well balanced and possessed a gentle, smooth and non-acidic finish.
