Winemaker Notes

Powerful, pungent aromas of sweet cherry, candied plum and toasty vanilla and oak. 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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Estate S.M.X is 60% Syrah and 20% each Merlot and Xinomavro, all from high altitude vines and aged in light to medium toast French oak for 12 months. The S.M.X references, of course, Syrah, Merlot and Xinomavro. Tightly wound and elegantly crafted in the mid-palate, this focused wine has a crisp and somewhat drying finish, while being flavorful and sunny – and just a touch tart. I loved the focus and precision on this wine. It broods without being forbidding. It does need a little cellar time to settle down, integrate its parts fully and develop, so give it a couple of years for best results. Drink 2014-2021.

Alpha Estate Alpha Estate Winery & Vineyard Winery Image

Alpha Estate is a winery located in the depths of Amyndeon's finest pastures. Alpha represents the "new beginning", the "birth" of a new era in the world of Greek wine. Makis Mavridis, a third generation skilled grapegrower, and Angelos Iatridis, the winemaker, educated in Bordeaux, trained in France, Italy and Greece and ''good father'' to many international well known Greek wines, planted a 65ha vineyard in the Amyndeon region in the late 1990's.

The creation of a privately owned estate vineyard was an enormous and pioneering investment at the time, which signalled the birth of pilot-structured vinicultural exploitation. Our on-going mission is to make wines that bring out the true characteristics of the region they originate from, wines that can reveal the characteristics of the soil, the climate and the typicity of the grape varieties they are made from.

Contribution of the human factor is indispensable to achieve our final goal, which is the production of grapes of the highest quality potential. The wines produced from such grapes are powerful and complex, displaying an intense fruity flavour and excellent balance. The company devotes a tremendous effort in improving the quality of its wines, through carefully planed investments and research programs, in collaboration with many research institutes. The success of these programs allows the company to evaluate permanently the quality and the character of its wine from one "vintage" to the next.
