Alpha Estate is a young and dynamic team of wine makers that is quickly establishing itself both in Greece and abroad for the quality of the wines produced. The Alpha Estate Red is one of their top of the range reds with a varietal composition of Syrah (60%), Xinomavro (20%), Merlot (20%) that achieves a great balance and strong presence.
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.
Pairing harmoniously with juicy red meats, venison, barbecued or spicy cooked. Meat pies as well. Paired with aromatic-piquant cheeses assures another intriguing suggestion.
