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. Gaia's main aim is to present the potential of the indigenous Greek grape varieties to wine enthusiasts worldwide. The handpicked grapes are destemmed, crushed and cold soaked for 12 hours with skin contactat 10C. The free run juice is fermented in tank (50%), oak casks (35%) and acacia casks (15%). Natural fermentation using only natural yeasts takes place in stainless steel and oak barrels.

Tasting notes - "Toasty, smoky and funky on the nose with mineral dusting and brooding intensity. The palate is salty dry with lazer-beam precision and very funky wild ferment layering of complexity with oak wreathed into the mix with sensitivity. The finish is dry, with lasting salty and tangy flavours. Unique and outstanding wine." (The Wine Gang)
