AGIORGITIKO BY GAIA

AGIORGITIKO by GAIA

The series of AGIORGITIKO are completed by AGIORGITKO by GAIA with the best way.  Rich and structured, it is balanced between fruit and the oak wood.

It can be aged for 4-6 years to acquire a more complex flavor, and an even more velvety taste.

Characterized by ripe fruit notes and balanced oak flavors our Agiorgitiko by Gaia can be aged 2-4 years after release and will evolve a velvety and complex wine.

We recommend pairing it with red meat dishes that are rich, intense and spicy, at a temperature between 16ο – 18οC.

SOIL

It consists of a shallow (70-80cm) clay layer that lies upon the lime mother soil with relatively neutral ph. Low organic content, like most of the limestone soils in Greece. On the slopes of the hills where most of the vineyards are located, the soils drain quite well but are exposed to erosion.

CLIMATE

Cold and humid winters with low temperatures that rarely drop below the freezing point. Summers are warm, without excessively high temperatures and with few showers during June. Typically, a long autumn follows the summer. The warm September days with significantly colder nights and the dry conditions synthesize an ideal weather pattern for a good maturation.  The total rain precipitations (600-700mm annually) occur mainly between October and March.

VINEYARD

Owned for 40 years in the semi-mountainous commune KOUTSI in NEMEA, at an altitude of 450-550 m with an intense slope # 15% & N-S.W direction. This vineyard is pruned very strictly in order to reduce its high fertile buds.

WINERY

The winery was built in 1997 at the heart of the private vineyard in Koutsi, Nemea at an altitude of 550m. Our winery in Koutsi is a contemporary industrial building with magnificent views of the plains of Nemea and the valley of Asopos River, around 350m below. Its capacity is 3,060 hectoliters while its production equipment and the high quality control systems offer to the oenologist every state-of-the-art instrument for a vertical production of high quality wines.
