This lovely white is 100% Malagouzia, an indigenous Greek grape that almost went extinct but has made a comeback since the 1970’s and is now grown all over Greece. Malagouzia produces medium bodied dry white wines that are highly aromatic with scents of flowers (rose petals), melon, Litchi, citrus fruits and herbs (rosemary).  Alpha’s Malagouzia is zesty and bright and dense with citrus fruits.  This is a great white wine to pair with Mediterranean foods, salads, baked vegetables, cheeses and especially seafood dishes.

Vines are grown on the Amyndeon plateau in the Amyndeon viticulture zone, of north-western Macedonia. "Turtles" is actually a sub-region of this area, located at about 670m altitude. Vineyards have a north-west exposure, directly facing mount Voras and are situated at an altitude of 620-710m.

After careful harvesting, grapes are destemmied but not crushed. They are cold soaked with skin contact under controlled conditions. The alcoholic fermentation takes placing with gradual increasing temperatures. When completed the wine rests on its lees (sur lie) for two months with regular stirring.
