Professional Wine Reviews for Gaia Estate Assyrtiko Wild Ferment 2015

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 2015 Assyrtiko Wild Ferment is Gai'a's alternative vision of Assyrtiko. About half the juice was aged in stainless steel. The rest was about evenly divided between new French, American and Acacia barriques; with just 3% each in used French, American and Acacia barriques. The complicated vinification process aside, this works beautifully this year. Lush and caressing in texture, it shows fine fruit and tastes great, handling the wood rather brilliantly, showing it mostly in the slightly sweet hint on the edge. It also seems nicely concentrated this year. Just when you think the only thing it needs is a little acidity to cut the lushness, the sun comes out on the finish, so to speak, and enlivens this wine with a crisp undertone. This has not always been my favorite of Gai'a's lineup, but there is nothing to complain about here, only things to admire. There were 49,000 bottles produced.

Winery: Gaia Estate

Country: Greece

Thanks to thousands of years of viticulture, and a dedication to quality and experimentation, Greek wines remain in a league of their own and continue to surprise and delight wine lovers around the world. From the refined and delicious Agiorghitiko wines, with their deep ruby red color and intense fruit flavors, to the unusual and highly aromatic fortified wines made with the black Mavrodaphne grapes, Greek wine is renowned for its variety and consistent excellence. It seems the blazing Mediterranean sunshine allows wineries to make the most of the late harvests and all the intensity of flavor this brings, resulting in wines which are bursting with fruit-forward character and unusual aromas.
