A very unusual and un-Greek like Chardonnay here! Perfumed aromas of melon, ripe pineapple, and lemon combine with toasty butterscotch notes. Opulent, with a richly oaked texture, beautiful balance and spicy minerality on the finish. Cold skin-contact maceration took place at the beginning of the vinification increasing the varietal aromatics. Fermentation took place in French oak barrels; followed by maturation on the fine lees in medium-toasted French oak for seven months, which enhanced the creaminess and rich texture of this wine.
Ktima Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Evangelos Gerovassiliou. He initiated the revival of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. This state-of-the-art winery is now surrounded by 80 hectares of meticulously well-cared and certified sustainable vineyards on the slopes of Epanomi. Ktima Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high-quality wines of international acclaim every year and his Malagousia remains the benchmark to this day.
