Gaia - Thalassitis Oak Fermented - White - 2014
Αίσθηση ξύλου, βανίλιας, λιβανιού και λουλουδιών ακακίας "ντύνουν" το φρούτο του Ασύρτικου, ενώ το "στόμα" του είναι στρογγυλό, σχεδόν λιπαρό, με επίμονη διάρκεια.
Thalassitis Oak Fermented is produced by fermenting and ageing Santorini’s Assyrtiko grape in oak barrels from Nevers and in acacia casks from Southern France. The fermentation is carried out in 225lt new French oak casks from Nevers. After fermentation, the young wine is aged “sur lie” (on lees) in the same casks for 4-5 months. During this period yeast lees are once a week put into suspension by stirring (bâttonage).
Thalassitis Oak Fermented is a well-structured wine with mineral flavours, well-combined with nuances of wood, vanilla, incense and acacia flowers. Enjoy it with fatty fish, lamb and poultry at 8o-10o C. If you keep the wine for 5-6 years under proper cellar conditions, it continues to evolve in a more composite form. Don’t forget to pour Thalassitis Oak Fermented into a wide decanter half an hour before serving. You will definitely be pleased by the result!
