Alpha Estate Single Vineyard Turtles Florina Malagouzia 2020

A delicately aromatic wine with light floral notes and
hints of green apple, grapefruit and white pepper with a
zesty, mineral finish.


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
The Malagouzia grapes (pronounced Mah-lah-gou-ZYA) 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 must was fermented in stainless steel tanks
and was 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. Bright and long on the finish.
