Reviews of purchase Alpha Estate, "S.M.X.", Florina PGI
Wine of deep ruby color with a violet hue.
The rich and expressive taste of wine reveals a multifaceted palette of fruit tones, sounded against a background of well-integrated, tangible tannins. Bright acidity gives a vigorous sound, and a long aftertaste charms with the nuances of spices.
The wine has a powerful, spicy, rich aroma in which notes of candied plum, cherries and refined shades of fresh toast are highlighted. The frame of the bouquet is accents of black fruits, beautifully decorated with nuances of vanilla and oak.
The ideal complement for this wine is red meat, venison dishes, barbecue, as well as sharp meat or fish dishes. Wine also goes well with savory pastries and spicy cheeses.
The name of the wine "SMX" is nothing more than an abbreviation, which is easy to decipher if you know the varietal composition of this red dry: Syra, Merlot, Xinomavro. Vinohard is grown in the winemaking zone of Amindeon in northwestern Macedonia. Vines grow on well drained, sandy-argillaceous and limestone soils.
After separation from the crests, the berries are not crushed, but sent to cold maceration and alcohol fermentation under thermal control for eight months. This whole period of wine is regularly mixed. At least 12 months the wine is aged in old oak barrels.
