Alpha Estate Malagouzia

Alpha Estate Malagouzia 2016

GreeceFrom the Amyndeon plateau of north-western Macedonia, this is from the Turtles vineyard block, named for the nesting local turtles nearby. This malagouzia grows at 670m, was destemmed and cold soaked with skins prior to fermentation and two months on the skins. This fully displays the grape's lush roundness, with a creamy palate imbued with delicate rose petals, fleshy pear, white peach, and a tight fist of herbal scrubby spices. Medium bodied (13 degrees) but luxuriously expansive, this is a lovely alternative to pour alongside grilled med veg, and oily white fish.Tasted: 28 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: AB 24.00 BC 20.00 private wine stores Producer: Alpha EstateDistributors: Univins
