Dry, Still, White, Sauvignon Blanc, Drink it now, 13% alc.
Here Alpha Estate delivers masterful use of drum lessons , with elements of wood to highlight the characteristics of the variety , leading to a large, 'varelato' Sauvignon Blanc from the Greek vineyard.
Its color is lemon green with golden highlights. In the nose is extremely complex with fresh flavors such as melon, pear and citrus fruit, to tie the plant components and supplemented with those of the oak as vanilla and nuts, but with subtle yeast notes from staying with the wine mud. In the mouth it is rich and oily with lively acidity brings balance. In taste fruity elements compete with vanilla, while making their appearance and some mineral notes on the finish. The wine shows that Greece can provide world-class Sauvignons.
