Professional Wine Reviews for Gaia Estate 14-18h Rose Agiorgitiko 2015

Rated 89 by Robert Parker
The 2015 Rosé 14-18H is the familiar Agiorgitiko pink from Gai'a. Fresh, crisp, clean and tasty, this youngster is in fine shape this year, emphasizing its sunny demeanor and relatively serious style. It projects elegance and grace, while maintaining fine intensity of flavor and a lively demeanor. In its youth, it has more than enough mid-palate solidity, too. A popular and traditional summer choice these days, this is a nice and nicely balanced effort. It should be glorious this summer, when it will likely be at its best.

Additional Information on Gaia Estate 14-18h Rose Agiorgitiko 2015

Winery: Gaia Estate

Varietal: Agiorgitiko

For many thousands of years, the Agiorgitiko grape varietal has thrived in the arid mountainsides of the Peloponnese, where it is prized for its hardiness and high resistance to high temperatures. Typically, wineries in Greece cultivate Agiorgitiko grapes to have low yields with concentrated flavors, in an attempt to get the strongest characteristics from these flavorful grapes. Typically, Agiorgitiko grapes have beautiful plum flavors, with notes of other dark fruits and a spicy character, although they are notable for the fact that they respond very well to a range of wine making techniques. As such, there are many different styles of wine made from the Agiorgitiko grape, ranging from tannic and astringent to very soft and rounded. They are also popular with wineries due to the fact that they grow in often very infertile land, and improve the quality of the soil in which they are cultivated.

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
