The rare Malagouzia grape has recently been rescued from the edge of extinction by passionate Greek winemakers, and it continues to garner favour across the world. Alpha Estate select grapes from a single vineyard site of sandy clay soils known as "Turtles", because it is a nesting site for the local turtle population. Grapes are crushed and cold soaked with skin contact before the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks, remaining on fine lees for two months with regular stirring to impart a creamy texture and added complexity.
This creates a wine with a strong and lively nose of grapefruit, nectarine, green apple, white pepper and hints of almond blossom. Richly textured on the very flavoursome palate, with superb length, balance and plenty of finesse. Bright and zesty on the finish. Try with seafood, olive oil and fresh herb vegetable dishes, poultry, light pastas or salads.
The pristine Alpha Estate is located in the Amyndeo/Amyndaio plateau of the Florina wine region in the north west of Greece. The country's coolest viticultural region, Alpha Estate own 120 hectares of single block vineyards. They use up to date vineyard techniques and winemaking technology to produce world class wines from French and indigenous Greek varietals.
Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
