Gaia Wild Ferment Assyrtiko 2019

One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution Gaia Estate was established in 1994 by Greek winemakers Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Operating two different wineries they make cutting edge wines in both Nemea and Santorini.

The Wine Merchant Top 100 Trophy for the Best White Wine has been awarded to Gaia Wines - Wild ferment Assyrtiko 2014!

Vinification
The handpicked grapes are destemmed, crushed and cold soaked for 12 hours with skin contact at 10C. The free run juice is fermented in inox tank (50%), oak casks (35%) and acacia casks (15%). Natural fermentation using only natural yeasts ttakes place in stainless steel and oak barrels.

Viticulture
The native 80 year old Assyrtiko Gaias vines are carefully hand weaved into basket shapes and the grape bunches are coerced into growing inside the basket of the canes. The winds can be so fierce in this area that the basket vines are of great advantage.

Tasting Note
Toasty, smoky and funky on the nose with mineral dusting and brooding intensity. The palate is salty dry with lazer-beam precision and very funky wild ferment layering of complexity with oak wreathed into the mix with sensitivity. The finish is dry, with lasting salty and tangy flavours. Unique and outstanding wine. (The Wine Gang)

Everyday Serving Suggestion
The Wild Ferment from Gaia is to be enjoyed with seafood, meatier fish, lamb and poultry.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
