2019 GAI'A Estate Red, Agiorgitiko, Nemea, Greece
In Greece there are two very special native grapes. The white varietal, Assyrtiko and then this red wine by Gai'a, of the Agiorgitiko grape.
Nowhere else on earth can this style of wine, from this red grape be made to produce such profound "drink me now" approachability and also great aging potential.
The island of Nemea is the grapes homeland. The stony soils, semi-mountainous terrain, cold, wet winters and cool summers allow a delicious, beautiful wine to be made, unlike any you may have tried before.
This estate red shows a deep red-black color, complex and high intense aromatic profile with side elements of ripe red fruits, fresh cut wood, vanilla and carnation. Mouth filling volume, body, structure and flavor complement the character of this unusual Nemean wine.
