Alpha Estate Red (S.M.X) Syrah Merlot Xinomavro - Greece
Variety Composition: Syrah 60%, Xinomavro 20%, Merlot 20%.

Region / Location / Vineyard / Soil:
Amyndeon plateau. Amyndeon viticulture zone. North-western Macedonia. “Children’s” & “Horses” sub-regions. 69ha of linear privately owned vineyard. The altitude of 620-710 m. Sandy - sandy clay soil of excellent drainage over a thin limestone layer.

Vinification Method & Ageing:
Destemming, no crushing, cold soak – skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increasing temperatures, maintenance of wine “sur lie” for eight months with regular stirring. Twelve months minimum in Allie - Bertrange oak casks medium-light toast. No treatment or filtration before bottling, and twelve months in bottles.

Tasting Characteristics: Deep ruby color with purple hints. Powerful, pungent aromas of sweet cherry, candied plum, and toasty vanillin oak. Full-bodied and deep in dark fruit flavors, with a peppery and strong oak spicy accents background. The solid tannins build through the finish but there is plenty of supporting depth of fruit here, not to mention a bright acid lift on the back that adds energy. A ‘’Vin de Garde’’ with a great future.

Harmony: Pairing harmoniously with juicy red meats, venison, barbecued or spicy cooked. Meat pies as well. Paired with aromatic-piquant cheeses assures another intriguing suggestion.

Best served at 16-18ο C. (60,8-64,4 ο F).

ALPHA Estate in an award-winning Greek winemaker, located at the northwest part of Greece, the Amyndeon, Florina region. Alpha Estate was founded in 1997.
