User Reviews for Alpha Estate Red Blend

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification Method: Destemming, no crushing, cold soak – skin contact under controlled conditions, alcoholic fermentation at gradual increased temperatures, maintenance of wine “sur lie” for eight months with regular stirring. Ageing: Twelve months minimum in Allie - Bertrange oak casks medium - light toast. No treatment or filtration before bottling, and twelve months in bottles.

Tasting Notes:

Deep ruby color with purple hints. Powerful, pungent aromas of sweet cherry, candied plum and toasty vanillin oak. Full bodied and deep in dark fruit flavors, with a peppery and strong oak spicy accents background. The solid tannins build through the finish but there is plenty of supporting depth of fruit here, not to mention a bright acid lift on the back that adds energy. A ‘’Vin de Garde’’ with a great future.
