The Wine:

A wonderful example of Xinomavro with its complex bouquet of small berried red fruits, leather, pepper, clove and vanilla spice showing great typicity. Structured and beautifully balanced with rounded tannins and well-integrated oak, with a touch of quince on the finish.

Xinomavro is a native variety found in northern Greece. Alpha Estate has 69 hectares of privately owned vineyards, which are located on the Amyndeon plateau, in North West Macedonia in the Anyndeon viticulture zone. The grapes for this wine are grown in the sub region known as ‘Hedgehog’, which is located at 690 metres above sea level and faces Lake Petron and Mount Voras.

The wine was left on its fine lees or “sur lie”, for a period of approximately eight months with regular stirring and maturation lasted for 12 months in Allier oak barrels of medium grain, with a light toasting, followed by 12 months bottle ageing.

Further Info:

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 220 hectares of privately owned single block vineyards, which are certified sustainable, and employs the most up to date vineyard techniques and winemaking technology to produce world class wines from French and indigenous Greek varietals.
