Gaia Estate Agiorgitiko 2016

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. Agiorgitiko (pronounced Ah-yor-YEE-te-ko) is a fragrant red wine grape native to Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. The grapes for this wine are cultivated in a seven hectare single estate vineyard in Koutsi, Nemea. Aged for up to 20 months in mostly new French oak casks, the final wine was bottled without fining or filtration. Delivering both power and a velvety texture, this is a stunning red wine. It delivers great depth and complexity with concentrated black and red fruits, vanilla, black pepper and violet enveloped in powerful, yet smooth tannins. A rich, expressive wine completed by a long, smooth finish.
