Ktima Gerovassiliou… the brainchild of Vangelis Gerovassiliou!
On the slopes of Epanomi, a few kilometres from the city of Thessaloniki, a meticulously tended vineyard surrounds the modern winery, where the renowned Ktima Gerovassiliou wines are produced. At Ktima Gerovassiliou the vineyard is cultivated with great care & enthusiasm that leads V. Gerovassiliou to constantly research & experiment with Greek & foreign varieties, both well- & less- known. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout vine growing & vinification processes. The aim is to produce high-quality wines from grapes cultivated in the privately-owned vineyard which exhibit all the distinctive characteristics of the specific microclimate (terroir) of Epanomi. The creation of the Wine Museum, in combination with its various organised activities, including visits, wine tastings, educational programs, seminars, publications, lectures, theatrical, & musical performances, further contributes to the diffusion of wine-growing culture.
“Ktima Gerovasilliou – Lefko”, is a pioneering blend of two indigenous grape varieties, Malagousia & Assyrtiko. For production, the skin contact in cold is retained for a few hours & then is followed by alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 18ºC. The result is a wine with bright blond colour & greenish shades, that has a distinctive nose with impressions of exotic fruit & notes of green pepper, jasmine, orange, melon & lemon. The first contact with the palate exudes refinement, characterised overall by richness, harmony, a pleasant vitality & a lemony finish. It pairs nicely with fresh shellfish, white meat with light sauces, pasta dishes, Greek salad (tomato & feta cheese), Mediterranean & Asian cuisine.
Enjoy it fresh during its youth served at 8–10°C.
