Agiorgitiko is the principle red grape of Nemea, making silky smooth, fruit-packed reds with a velvety finish. This cuvée from the pioneering Gaia winery shows intense aromatic finesse evolving from ripe berries and gooseberry through to caramel and discreet oak nuances. Soft tannins underline a rich, well structured velvety body.
Agiorgitiko is a fragrant red wine grape native to Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula. The vineyards are located near to Koutsi, a semi-mountainous village. The vineyards here are known for their chalky soils and good drainage. The cool temperatures, the ideal
sun exposure and the steep inclination of the vineyards combine to produce lower yields than other parts of Nemea, but the berries have excellent concentration of flavour.
