Gaia Wines Estate Red Agioritiko
Gaia Wines Estate Red Agioritiko from Greece
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.
The single estate hanpicked grapes were cold soaked and macerated for a lengthy period then the wine was matured in French oak casks for 14-16 months. No fining or filtration was needed. Bottled aged for 12 months.
Simply stunning - sweet, serious and velvety. Great depth and complexity with loads of black and red fruits with powerful yet smooth tannins. A top red not just from Gaia Estate but in our opinion, the whole of the Mediterranean.
Everyday Serving Suggestion
Gaia Estate Red Agioritiko is best served with rich vegan pasta dishes and vegan casserole.
