The number 1 of 50 Great Greek Wines!

SEND PAGE TO FRIEND

Why do we love it?

Ammonite Gaia Wines is the new Assyrtiko that made a tremendous impression after it appeared for the first time in 50 Great Greek Wines and came out as the best wine of the test, the number 1 out of 50. After tasting it, we concluded that it definitely deserves this distinction although it still has a lot to give since it is still an infant.

After the results were announced, the phones were buzzing and everyone was looking for Ammonite Gaia Wines because maybe no one had heard of it until its debut. Yannis Paraskevopoulos with his various Thalassitis wines has proven to us that he knows how to handle Assyrtiko and the potential of Santorini’s vineyard very well. We certainly had high expectations from Ammonite, especially when we learned that it is a single vineyard Assyrtiko, from a centuries-old vineyard, which matures for 15 months on its lees, while a small proportion of the wine matures in new French oak barrels. The result impresses both with its structure and its concentration.

Our advice is: one bottle for now and one for the next decade.

* Its name is inspired by the winery's emblem, the ammonite, a fossil marine organism. The embossed visual on the label, the mathematical Fibonacci sequence, captures the absolute mathematical harmony that can be endless and is likened to the perfection and harmony of the wine.

In a blender, mash all the marinade ingredients.

Season the lamb well on all sides and spread the marinade on the inside.

Spread 2-3 sheets on your counter, which will fit the lamb, spread the vine leaves and place the lamb above them.

Fill the peppers with the cheese, place them in the middle and wrap in a roll, lifting the oil sheet with the vine leaves.
