GAI'A Monograph Agiorgitiko 2018

One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution, Gai’a Estate (pronounced Yay-ya) was established in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos and winemaker Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Their mission was to capture the best that Greece’s indigenous grapes have to offer by merging traditional viticultural and production methods with innovative techniques. The estate is named after “Mother Earth,” in honor of the unique terroir that gives birth to these world-class wines.

About the Vineyard

The grapes for the Monograph Agiorgitiko come from vineyards located on the hills of the Nemea wine region, at an altitude of 1,800ft. The climate is moderately cool at this mid-level elevation, resulting in grapes that are concentrated in flavor with well-developed tannins and balanced acidity. 

Tasting Notes

A delightful introduction to the Agiorgitiko varietal, this red-purple wine has a fruit-forward, medium bodied palate, ripe with flavors of cherry, pomegranate and a hint of butterscotch. It is easy-going with smooth, soft tannins and a fruity finish.

Food Pairing

This red is an excellent accompaniment to spicy foods and red meat dishes.
