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.

CP Chardonnay

Descriptions:

Nestled in the rolling hills and vineyards halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, along California’s famed Central Coast. The Paso Robles wine grape growing region’s climate is perfect, with a long growing season of warm days and cool evenings that give rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavour profiles that translate beautifully in your glass.

This is a truly beautiful chardonnay. Just the right balance of tropical fruit, pear, stone fruits and citrus with light touches of vanilla and oak for balance. Well-structured, crisp, clean and sexy with sweet fruit flavours mingling with light minerals and oak, leading to a wonderful, long, rich, lingering finish.
