Domaine Gerovassiliou Epanomi Estate White is a delicious Greek blend of the native Malagousia and Assyrtiko grapes. The Malagousia shows expressive, subtly exotic aromas, while the Assyrtiko adds mouth-wateringly citrus notes; pepper, orange, jasmine, herbs and lemon flavours follow on a fascinatingly complex palate.

More info

At Ktima Gerovassiliou, the single, private 74 hectare vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm, which leads to constant research and experimentation with Greek and international varieties. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout the vine growing and vinification processes to produce high quality wines that carry all the distinct characteristics of the terroir of Epanomi. The climate is Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, tempered by sea breezes. The vineyard is surrounded on three sides by the sea, which is three kilometres away, while its west side faces the Thermaic Gulf, Mount Olympus and the beaches of Pieria. The vines are grown in soils which are mainly sandy with a few clayey substrates and calcareous rocks. It is rich in sea fossils, as the surrounding hilly area was formed by sea deposits.

The Assyrtiko (pronounced Ah-SEER-tee-koe) and Malagousia (Mah-lah-gou-ZYA) grapes underwent skin contact maceration to extract aromas. Fermentation followed in stainless steel at controlled temperatures of between 18-20°C. The wine was clarified by gravity and then matured on the lees for several months. Gently fined prior to bottling.

Domaine Gerovassiliou

Ktima Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Evangelos Gerovassiliou. He initiated the revival of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. This state of the art winery is now surrounded by 72 hectares of meticulously well cared vineyards on the slopes of Epanomi. Ktima Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high quality wines of international acclaim every year and his Malagousia remains the benchmark to this day.
