About this wine

The Moschofilero “Wild Ferment by Gaia” Gaia Wines grapes underwent a pre-fermentation cold soak on the skins for 48 hours. Spontaneous fermentation took place with wild yeasts. 25% of the must was fermented at 28°C in barrels, of which 1/3 was French oak, 1/3 American oak and 1/3 French Acacia; the remaining 75% fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to retain the aromatic varietal characteristics. The wine was aged on its lees in a combination of stainless steel tanks and wooden casks for four months, with frequent bâtonnage to impart texture. This is a wild ferment Moschofilero.he 25-year old Moschofilero vines are grown in the village of Agiorgitika, on the plateau of Mantineia, at an altitude of 600 to 800 metres. The vines flourish on the south-westerly facing slopes, where they are planted in sandy-clay soils. The climate is cold, with plentiful rains and snow during the winter, and relatively low temperatures with frequent rain in the summer. The harvest takes place later in autumn as the grapes ripen slowly due to this cooler microclimate, producing aromatic fruit with naturally balancing acidity. The vines are trained according to the traditional methods of canopy management, which suits the climate and terroir.
