Gaia Wines Agiorgitiko Rosé 4-6H 2019

The Gaia 406H Rosé is an aromatic rosé wine with floral notes of rose petals and fruity flavours of pomegranate and wild strawberry. Vibrant and refreshing with lifted wild cherry notes on the finish.

Producer Note - 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. Gaia's main aim is to present the potential of the indigenous Greek grape varieties to wine enthusiasts worldwide. Vintage The grapes reached perfect sugar and aromatic maturity relatively early in September 2017. The health of the grapes at harvest time was impeccable, resulting in a vibrant fruit flavours and beautifully balanced wines.

Vineyard - Agiorgitiko (pronounced Ah-yor-YEE-te-ko) is a fragrant red wine grape native to Greece's Peloponnese peninsula. The grapes come from a vineyard in the Asprokambos area of the Nemea PDO. The climate is Mediterranean, with mild, fairly wet winters and long, hot and relatively dry summers. The 15 to 30 year old vines are grown at altitudes ranging from 800 to 1,040 metres above sea level. The vines are trained according to the double Cordon Royat method, with short pruning to two buds. The soil consists of compact lime pebble conglomerates and marls with layers of loose sediments. The grapes were carefully selected grapes and hand-picked at optimum maturity.

Winemaking - The grapes were placed in cooling chambers where the temperature was rapidly lowered from 28 to 30°C to just 4 to 6°C within a few hours. Having been chilled, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold soaked at temperatures of 8°C for approximately four to six hours (hence the name of the wine '4-6H' ). The entire batch was then pressed and the free-run must and first press juice were retained. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 15 to 16°C and lasted for two weeks. The wine was gently fined, cold stabilised and underwent minimal filtration prior to bottling.

Tasting Note - An appealing and vivid rosé with an intense and aromatic profile which hovers between delicate floral notes of rose petals and fruity flavours of pomegranate and wild blackcurrant. Vibrant and refreshing with lifted wild cherry notes on the finish.

Serving Suggestion - Ideal with salads and delicate poultry dishes. Its refreshing and aromatic qualities are ideal with Asian cuisine.

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.
