2020 GAI'A Assyrtiko Wild Ferment, Greece
A unique area known worldwide for its complex ecosystem. This rare white wines made from the indigenous variety of Assyrtiko owe their uniqueness to the volcanic and porous soil of the island of Santorini.
The wild yeast strains which prevail are eventually the ones which will determine the wines character.
The citrus aromas of the Assyrtiko grapes combined with the floral aromas of the acacia wood and the vanilla of the oak result to a wine with a highly complex aromatic profile. Minerality and well-balanced acidity give depth and longevity. This white wine will continue to evolve for 2-5 years, as the mineral notes soften the palate will develop more nuanced flavors of fruit and honey.
GAIA says, "Remember to decant ASSYRTIKO BY GAIA, at least half an hour before you enjoy it. Its new dimensions that will continue emerging will excite you!"
