Professional Wine Reviews for Gaia Estate Wild Ferment Assyrtiko 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

It is almost impossible to understate the importance of local and regionally produced wines in Greek culture. Across the country, from the cities of the mainland to the villages, mountainous regions and islands, wine is produced using traditional methods and native grape varietals, and is drank in households and taverns, either accompanying the much loved local cuisine or alone as a refreshment under the blazing Mediterranean sunshine. For wine lovers around the world, Greece is known for producing several wines with something unique and interesting to offer, a refreshing change from the norm filled with surprises and complex, occasionally challenging or unusual flavors and aromas. Thanks to the vast range in terrain across the archipelago, Greek wine is as varied as it is delicious, meaning there is plenty to explore and enjoy from this fascinating and ancient country.
