Alpha Estate Assyrtiko White Wine

Alpha Estate is one of Greece's most renowned wineries and is located at the northwest part of Greece, the Amyndeon, Florina region. 

Crystal, bright sub-yellow-straw, with greenish hints. Nose intense and rich, complex, typical of the variety. Citrus, floral and white stone fruits. Excellent structure, creamy and crisp. Long and persistent finish.

Vinification: Skin contact for 16 hours, controlled alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with cooling jackets, maintenance of wine “sur lies” for four months with regular stirring.

 

Review: You can feel the ambition packed into this wine as soon as you lift the extra-thick bottle. Then you’ll smell it, in the pale, creamy, spicy scent of barrels. Sourced from a vineyard in Amyndeon planted in sandy clay at 1,755 feet of elevation, it lives up to its packaging, presenting assyrtiko in the style of Grand Cru Chablis. It’s rich, round and savoury, the flavours presented in shades of beige—spice, earth, cream—with the variety’s inherent acidity pulling everything into a tailored, precise line. It holds that line for days after opening, the wine polished and powerful, designed to prove assyrtiko’s place in fine dining.

Enjoy this wine with a grazing board full cheese, charcuterie, Greek olivesfig pie and bite-sized artisan delicacies

Pair with the matching Red - Alpha Estate Xinomavro Reserve
