VASILIO 2018 – ESTATE GOFAS

A magical expression of Nemea
54.60 49.64

[product_subtitle] The Gofas family tradition is lost in time with generations of wine producers being involved in wine making in the family owned vineyards in Nemea. Vasilio 2018 is a majestic wine that is one of the finest protagonists today within the Nemea terroir. Grapes come from a single vineyard in Koutsi, the centre of this mythical region which has been producing wine for 3000 years. The 50 years old vineyard was planted by the godfather of Costantine Gofas, at an altitude of 480m and at a very difficult slope. Without any irrigation the vineyard produces very limited yields of precious concentrated fruit which remains for 30 months in French oak barrels and then is bottled in 900 rare bottles, where it stays for another year. With an aging potential of 10 years this superb wine will become even better if you decide to keep it for a few more years in your cellar. But can you resist the temptation?
