Gaia Estate Nemea 2008 $62 “A deep red-black colour, complex aromatic profile, good structure and great volume. Without a doubt, under proper cellar conditions it continues to evolve into an even better and more highly structured wine for at least a decade. Someone should be patient with this wine, if he wants to discover its real personality.” – Gaia Website

The best fruit from Gaia’s vineyards made to be an impressive and long lived red wine.
