Alpha Estate Rose, Xinomavro, 2019
Rose | PDO Amyndeon | Macedonia | Northern Greece | 13% ABV | 750ml
The grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard at 620-710m in Ag. Kyriaki, Amyndeon.
Intensely perfumed, bearing flavours of ripe melon, dried strawberry and wild cherries.
Appetising and refreshing with good body. Flavours of melon and green apricot with botanical hints fill up the mouth.
This is the shining star of the Greek vineyard! An intriguing grape, that needs good care when growing and though it might be susceptible to wet weather in the vineyard, when healthy, harvested appropriately and treated with focus in the winery hits admirable heights of body and complexity. Moreover and thanks also to its tight tannins and high acidity, it is suitable for long ageing. If you are a cellar fanatic, there is no better Greek grape to invest your patience on. It is obvious from Xinomavro wines of 30 or more years of age available today, that the potential of slow transformation of flavours, increasing complexity and better integration with time is huge.
