Gaia Estate Assyrtiko Thalassitis 2015

Gaia Estate - Cyclades - Greece - Santorini
Rated 92 - The 2015 Thalassitis is Gai'a's familiar, old-vines Assyrtiko, unoaked and without malolactic fermentation (as the winery points out, 'due to the climate conditions of Santorini the wine contains no malic acid, thus no malolactic fermentation is required').

Additional Information on Gaia Estate Assyrtiko Thalassitis 2015

Winery: Gaia Estate

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.
