Producer Note
Alpha Estate is located in Amyndeon, North West Greece. It is the brainchild of two
visionaries, second generation vine grower Makis Mavridis and Bordeaux trained
wine maker Angelos Iatrides. Angelos is one of the most talented winemakers
working in Europe. This pristine estate in the cool highlands of Western Macedonia
comprises 120 hectares of privately owned single block vineyards and employs the
most up to date vineyard techniques and winemaking technology to produce world
class wines from French and indigenous Greek varietals.
Vineyard
The Malagouzia grapes come from a single vineyard site, known as "Turtles"
because it is a nesting site for the local turtle population. The soil is sandy clay with
excellent drainage.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and then cold soaked with skin
contact under controlled conditions. The alcoholic fermentation took place at
gradually increasing temperatures then maintained on its fine lees or "sur lie" for two
months with regular stirring, imparting a creamy texture and added complexity to
the final wine.
Tasting Note
A strong and lively nose of grapefruit, nectarine and hints of almond blossom. This
richly textured wine is very flavoursome, has superb length, balance and plenty of
finesse.
Serving Suggestion
Excellently matched with green salads, baked vegetables, pasta, non oily fish and a
wide variety of Greek sea food "Meze".
