Producer Note
Alpha Estate is located in Amyndeo, 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
Xinomavro (pronounced Ksee-NOH-mav-roe) is a native variety found in northern
Greece. The vines are grown in a single vineyard in the ‘Hedgehog’ subregion, of the
Amyndeon plateau. It is situated at an altitude of 690 metres, with a northern
orientation facing Lake Petron and Voras Mountain. The influences from the mountain
and the lake contribute to the unique microclimate. The vines are planted at a density
of 3,700 vines per hectare and yield 36.5 hectolitres per hectare, post a green harvest
and careful selection. The soils are sandy and sandy-clay over limestone, which offer
excellent drainage. Precise cultivation takes place in the vineyard with a Regulated
Deficit Irrigation (RDI) system in place. The grapes are certified as sustainably cultivated
and are manually harvested.
Winemaking
The single vineyard grapes were destemmed, optically sorted and lightly crushed. A
cold soak took place at 8°C for two hours followed by fermentation with selected yeasts
at gradually increasing temperatures. The wine was maintained ‘sur lie’ or on its fine
lees for three months with regular stirring to impart texture and complexity to the wine.
Produced by the saignée method.
Tasting Note
A pale and lively pink coloured rosé with an aromatic and fresh bouquet of peach and
strawberry, layered with rose petals, spice and mineral notes. Crisp with a creamy, fruity
palate through to a long finish.
