The Shades of Amyndeon 2017

March 1 through March 31, Molyvos, in collaboration with Hellenic Wine World  and the Amyndeon Wine Cluster, presents:  The Shades of Amyndeon 2017

This March, we’re featuring three wonderful terroir-driven wines from Alpha Estate. Located in the Amyndeon, Florina region of Greece, this winery was founded in 1997 by Makis Mavridis and Angelos Latridis. Alpha Estate’s choice location and eco-friendly growing practices result in the production of unique world-class wines.

Amyndeon, located in northwestern Greece, is a region known for its high altitude vineyards. The moderate climate, sandy soil, and heavy seasonal rains of Amyndeon create the ideal conditions for growing grape varieties such as Xinomavro, Mavrodaphne, Syrah, Merlot, and Malagousia.

Molyvos Wine Director Kamal Kouiri gives his recommendation of one white, one rosé, and one red wine from Alpha Estate, along with his suggested pairings from Chef Carlos’ kitchen.

 

 2015, Malagousia, Alpha Estate, Florina

This exotic white grape grows at 670 m of altitude on the plateau of Amyndeon. It’s a terroir driven, elegant wine that exhibits flavors of pear, white peaches and herbaceous notes. Nice body and fine texture, long finish and a touch of minerals.

Suggested pairing: Roasted Beet Salad  – Whipped Mizithra, Baby Arugula, White Kalamata Vinaigrette

 

2015, Rosé, A Blend of Xinomavro and Syrah, Alpha Estate, Florina

A super blend of Xinomavro, indigenous grape and cosmopolitan grape Syrah, sourced from two single vineyards “Hedgehog” and “Turtles.” Both grapes are grown at about 700 m of altitude, facing Petron Lake and Voras Mountain. This bright, rose-colored wine showcases flavors of strawberries, cherries, gooseberries, cranberries, rose water and a hint of orange peel. It is dry with a long, sophisticated aftertaste and amazing acidity.

Suggested pairing: Cannelloni – Stuffed Pasta, Braised Lamb Shank, Aged Kefaloyri Cheese Sauce

 

2012, Xinomavro, Single Vineyard “Hedgehog,” Alpha Estate, Amyndeon

Aged twelve months in French oak barrel, plus fourteen months in the bottle, the juice is complex, featuring a bouquet of forest red berries, leather and warm spices with hints of ripe blackberry. It has a full mouth, rounded tannins, balanced acidity and well-integrated wood tones.

Suggested pairing: Grilled Baby Lamb Chops – Creamy Wild Mushroom Potato Cake, Baby Greens, Ionian Garlic Sauce
