Gaia Wines are based in Santorini, Greece and the Wild Ferment Assyrtiko is made from ungrafted vines which are over 80 years old. Ungrafted vines are very hard to find as they will not have been affected by the Phyloxera bug and are seen as a true expression of wine. The older vines produce much less fruit but the concentration and quality is outstanding. The Gaia Assyrtiko vinified with only the wild yeasts of grapes (hence the term "Wild Ferment" on the bottle, to capture the authenticity and formality of Assyrtiko Santorini to 100%.
An outstanding, limited production wine that deservedly picked up a Decanter World Wine Gold Award!
 
This wine has been described as Chablis on steroids by many wine lovers... slight citrus aromas well-combined with elegant oak notes, a rich mouth fell, crispy acidity, intense mineral flavours and a long finish. 
 
Enjoy this wine with seafood, fatty fish, lamb and poultry.

Tasting Date : 06 December 2017

Pale platinum, the nose is fresh but tropical with a creamy fruit cocktail edge. The is green freshness too a zip of like, the palate is very open and ample with loads of pineapple and white peach fruit. This is quite new world in style, like an unoaked Chardonnay, but it does have a nice tension too. If you like a full flavoured wine you will love this, good balance too.

Rating : 89/100
