The most widely planted red grape variety in Greece, also known as St George. Traditionally it has been grown in the Peloponnese peninsula, but can now be found throughout the country. It is especially versatile and can be made into a wide range of styles from light rosés to soft, fruity reds made by carbonic maceration in a style similar to the French wines of Beaujolais, to very tannic wines with spicy, red fruit aromas and the potential to age. It can even be produced into a dessert wine, which is often done by drying the grapes in the sun to concentrate sugars. The best examples of Agiorgitiko tend to have moderate to low acidity, with a deep, ruby color, red fruit aromas and a sweet spicy note. It produces an "international style" of wine that some liken it to a cross between Merlot and Grenache.
A structured wine, showing the intense fruit of the grape variety and well integrated oak. With proper cellar conditions it will evolve over the next four years becoming more complex and velvety. This is medium bodied wine, with forward primary fruit, deep purple color and firm tannins.
Made from Agiorgitiko from the Nemea region. There are three levels of this grape in the Gaia range and this is their easy drinking / entry level version. A soft fruity wine that has lots of plum flavours with violet, and almost musky, lift to it. Nice and very easy to drink.
