Malagousia, Ktima Gerovassiliou

Greece, Macedonia

This wonderful indigenous Greek grape variety almost died out- very much brought back to life in this Domaine. A touch of Viognier here in its ripe apricot character and hints of mango and pear.”

Origin

From Thessaloniki in northern mainland Greece, on the slopes of Mount Epanomi. The vineyards are located only 3 kilometres from the sea - which surrounds the vineyard on three sides - so a constant supply of sea breezes helps to temper the hot summer climate.

Grape Variety

100% Malagousia.

Aromas are extracted using skin contact. The wine is around half fermented and matured in French oak, the other half in stainless steel. Matured on its less for a few months.

Producer

Evangelos Gerovassiliou runs his family estate of 56 hectares and has almost single-handedly revived the fortunes of this ancient grape variety, by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. The first vinification took place in 1986.

Food Match

Needs a white meat or fish dish to work best – also very good if with a couscous and dried fruit accompaniment.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
