Alpha Estate Malgouzia

Terroir

Amyndeon plateau. Amyndeon viticulture zone. North-western Macedonia. "Turtles" sub-region. 670m altitude, with north-western exposure, facing mount Voras. 69ha of Linear, privately owned vineyard situated at an altitude of 620-710m.

Vinification

Destemming, no crushing, cold soak - skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increasing temperatures, maintenance of wine "sur lies" for two months with regular stirring.

Features

Brilliantly, light yellow in color with greenish tints. Strong and lively nose, typical Malagouzia, suggesting rose petal with floral aromas and sweet spices, melon, litchi with a note of honeysuckle. Round and mellow on the palate, fat but balanced, high in alcohol with plenty of finesse. Well structured, reminding the nose aromas with a hint of rosemary. A richly textured wine with superb length and balance. A classy wine with long finish and persistent aromas.

Food Pairings

Excellently married with green salads, baked vegetables, pasta, low fat fishes and a wide variety of Greek sea food "Meze".

Press review

90 Points – Wine Spectator, Aug 31, 2015 Top 100: 2015, Rank: 73 “Rich and flush with fresh-cut green apple, honeydew melon and grapefruit flavors that feature a vibrant minerality. Delivers hints of savory herbs, leading to a lush finish of cream and spice. Drink now through 2018.”
