Wine Tasting Note: Gaia Estate 14-18 Rosé
, 2004, Peloponnese, Greece.
Available from Oddbins
A few friends, some wonderfully warm weather, a free-flowing rosé to accompany a simple salad – what more do you need? Throw in some fresh bread with the rocket/spinach/watercress/asparagus/boiled eggs and forget all about writing a tasting note. The wine eased us through lunch and on into the afternoon…
The wines name perhaps could do with a little explanation. 14-18h refers to the number of hours that the grape skins where left in contact with the juice. While Agiorgitiko is a red variety here they have produced a highly drinkable rosé; recommended. Alcohol 13%.
