Gaia Estate Red 2015
Delivering both power and a velvety texture, this serious, fine unfiltered wine has raised the stakes in the Nemea appellation. Deep red-black in color with a complex aromatic profile, good structure, and great volume. Without a doubt, under proper cellar conditions it will continue to evolve into an even more highly structured wine for at least a decade.
The complex and intense flavors of the full-bodied wine make it an ideal pairing for game and spicy meat dishes.
Thalassitis, a Santorini A.O.C. white wine, inaugurated the company's first appearance, and quickly won a place in the Greek wine market. The 9,800 numbered bottles of Thalassitis in 1994, rapidly rose to more than 100,000 in 1999, all the while maintaining its commitment to quality.
In 1996 GAIA WINES acquired a private vineyard in Koutsi region of Nemea, along with a perfectly equipped winery of a total capacity of 3.000hl.
Home of Greece’s famous and praise-worthy red variety, Agiorgitiko, Nemea is part of the Peloponnese.
Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
