Gaia

Agiorgitiko, 2005

Greece

Nemea 75cl

Gaia are one of Greece's top wineries. This wine from Nemea is made with Agiorgitiko grape sometimes known as St George. It's a grape that reminds me of Nebbiolo. It's perfumed, full flavoured with good acidity and tannin but not really big. Spicey gamey fruit on the nose hints of orange and spice on a perfumed nose. It's big and full with ripe berry fruits. Meaty and gamey with lots of spice. good acidity and grippy but ripe tannins. It's got a lick of oak too to tame it down and add length. And after the bite of tannin it does have some creaminess. It's all pretty impressive, certainly a food wine, but easily tamed!
