Professional Wine Reviews for Gaia Estate Thalassitis Assyrtiko 2015

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
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"). It comes in at just 12.9% alcohol. This is just gloriously fresh and makes a statement right off the bat. Clean and remarkably delicious, with the fruit lifted and zipped into the palate, this is a nervy Thalassitis that I liked a lot. There is just a tinge of lemon on the finish. The fruit dances over the tongue. It is fresh and refreshing. On the second day, it was even better, its parts far better integrated and its freshness sealing the deal. It is not, to be sure, the biggest in concentration and body (it could use a bit more, perhaps), but it is respectable enough and its summer-refresher demeanor is very appealing. It will drink well young, but this should hold on for a few years nicely. This is a high-personality offering that succeeds on its own terms. There were 67,000 bottles produced. - Wine Advocate.

Additional Information on Gaia Estate Thalassitis Assyrtiko 2015

Winery Gaia Estate

Country: Greece

Few countries in the world can claim such an illustrious history of viticulture as that found in Greece, just as few countries can benefit from such an impressive range of terrain as that found across the mainland and islands of this ancient and fascinating land. When we consider that grapes are grown everywhere from the tiny islands in the Aegean sea, to larger land masses such as Rhodes and Crete, on the arid and rocky mainland and mountainous regions of Greek Macedonia, it is no wonder Greek wines show such huge diversity in style, flavor, aroma and character. One thing remains consistent, however, and that is the dedication to producing distinctly 'Greek' wines, full of characteristics which reflect the slow evolution of viticulture in a country which has been producing wine for several thousand years. Whilst certain wines, such as Retsina and those made from the Agiorghitiko grapes have long since been popular with fine wine drinkers world-wide, Greek wineries are continuing to produce superb wines using a wide range of native and imported grape varietals, meaning there are always plenty of new flavors and aromas to discover.
