Malagousia, Ktima Gerovassiliou

Greece, Macedonia

This wine is entirely produced from the Greek grape variety of Malagousia, which was saved from extinction due to the efforts of Vangelis Gerovassiliou. It has a brilliant straw colour with greenish shades and an aroma of matured fruit such as pear, mango and citrus. On the palate the rich flavours of lemon peel enhance the appealing mouthfeel, adding a well-balanced finish.

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.

Following skin contact in cold, vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks at 18 °C, while some is vinified in French oak barrels. The wine is left with its lees for a number of months to gain structure and body.

Alcohol Percentage

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.
