Descriptions:

The Casa de Santar estate, still inhabited by its aristocratic owners, is run by Global Wines. From one parcel, Vinha dos Amores, they have produced this impressively ripe wine with its dense tannins. Full of spice, black plum skin texture and balanced acidity, it’s serious, concentrated and only just mature. 18 months in French Oak with 6 months in bottle before release.

Casa de Santar is the oldest and most emblematic wine estate in the heart of the Dão region, for the history, size and prestige of its wines. The seventeenth century estate has been held by the same family (now represented by the son of the Countess of Santar, Tereza de Lencastre de Mello) for fifteen generations. Casa de Santar has the largest vineyard area in Dão, with 103 hectares, 90 of which are red and 13 white. Winemaker, Osvaldo Amado, is striving to showcase the indigenous noble grapes of the Dão by achieving the best premium examples of Encruzado and Touriga Nacional with the grapes from the single estate Vinha dos Amores vineyards.

Monograph Assyrtiko 2017 (White Wine)

Descriptions:

Gaia’s main aim is to present the potential of indigenous Greek grape varietals to wine enthusiasts worldwide.

Meaning of Monograph-a focus on a particular subject, a study of the work of one artist … thus the winemaker’s study of the indigeneous Greek grape varietals.

Grape Varietal & Region: Assyrtiko “Ahh-Seer-Tee- Koh” is a minerally, dry white wine originally grown in the volcanic soil on the Greek island of Santorini,
but now grown throughout Greece including in Peloponnisos. Nemea is Greece’s largest wine appellation. The varietal’s character ranges from classic dry to a fruitier, softer style with Gaia being one of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution, making cutting edge wines in both Nemea and Santorini.

Assyrtiko by Gai’a Wild Ferment 2017

Descriptions:

Santorini PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), Greece was formed by a volcanic eruption, creating a crescent of land around a deep central lagoon, known as caldera. The stunning landscape draws hoardes of tourists for the sunsets, but the viticulture is also extraordinary.

Vines are trained round, in a basket shape, allowing the grapes to hang down in the centre, protected from the scorching sun and fierce winds by the canopy of leaves. Mineral rich volcanic soil are disease-free with no need to spray.

Gaia’s Assyrtiko Wild Ferment is produced by letting a combination of small 1,000 litre Inox tanks and 225 litre French barriques ferment on its own using native yeasts. Because of the unpredictability of using wild yeast, the vinification will occur differently in each tank or barrel. The winemaker then chooses only the best from each tank and barrel for the final blend, creating a wine that allows Assyrtiko to reach its full potential and level of enjoyment.
