Alpha Zeta 'S' Soave 2017
UNDER THE LAW OF HONG KONG, INTOXICATING LIQUOR MUST NOT BE SOLD OR SUPPLIED TO A MINOR IN THE COURSE OF BUSINESS.
This is a pale lemon coloured wine, with clean, bright aromas of almond blossom. With fresh acidity, the palate is ripe and concentrated, full of apple and pear flavours. The finish is lively and crisp.
We believe it is possible to make great wines in the Veneto at everyday prices that express the character of both the grape variety and the land.
Alpha Zeta was created in 1999 by UK wine importer, David Gleave MW, and New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson with this belief in mind. They realised that the key is to marry local grape growers with impeccable winemaking. All Alpha Zeta wines are made from indigenous grape varieties grown in the hills north-east of Verona. The flavours of the grape shine through in the glass offering great value, quality and balance.
Matt works with local Veronese grape growers in hillside vineyards to select parcels of fruit, rather than buying in bulk wine. They have worked together to reduce yields and the grapes are now picked later. In this way, we have been able to improve grape quality and obtain riper flavours.
