Gerovassiliou Viognier 2018
Winner of Gold Medal in Decanter Wine Awards 2020
This state of the art winery is surrounded by 55 hectares of meticulously well cared vineyards on the slopes of Epanomi. It is the brainchild of Vangelis Gerovassiliou who inititated the revival of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. Domaine Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high quality wines of international acclaim every year.
The low yielding vineyards are cultivated in compliance with ecologically sustainable management practices.
Mostly sandy rich in marine fossils.
The vinification starts with skin contact followed by barrel fermentation in new French oak. Finally, the wine matures on its lees to enhance the rich creaminess and mouthfeel.
It has an expressive aroma, with alternative impressions that bring memories of exotic fruits together with pepper, orange, jasmine, herbs and lemon.
Every day serving suggestion:
Served chilled with fresh crab or lobster; salads featuring prawn and asparagus or Asian cuisine.
