Evangelo is a blend of the red grape Syrah and the white Viognier.
Fermentation is induced simultaneously for both grape juices in Burgundian oak tanks of 40hL. One of the benefits of adding Viognier is the process of co-pigmentation, which stabilizes the colouring of red wine. In addition to its softening qualities, it also adds a stabilizing agent and enhanced aroma to the wine. After malolactic fermentation in the same tanks, the wine is aged in French oak barrels.
The wine is generous in varietal fruit and flavour, yet concentrated and should age gracefully.
Food pairing: best enjoyed with fine cuts of game, herb roasted poultry, wine-sauced dishes. A nice wine around the BBQ, particularly with grilled chicken and pork.

At Ktima Gerovassiliou the vineyard is cultivated with great care and enthusiasm that leads V. Gerovassiliou to constantly research and experiment with Greek and foreign varieties, both well and less known ones. New technological advances blend well with tradition throughout vine growing and vinification processes.
The aim is to produce high quality wines from grapes cultivated exclusively in the privately-owned vineyard; wines that carry all distinct characteristics of the specific microclimate (terroir) of Epanomi.
