Alpha Zeta Terrapieno Pinot Grigio


Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 when Liberty Wines set out to produce a range of modern, fruit-driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson, the aim was to work with growers (rather than buy bulk wine, which is standard among most wines from Verona at this price) to obtain ripe grapes (by reducing yields and picking later) and then, using Matt's expertise, preserve these flavours in the finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in Veronese viniculture.

The Terrapieno vineyard is situated in the Valpantena Valley in eastern Valpolicella. Cool currents blow down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. A great aspect and excellent vineyard management produce fruit that is incredibly intense in flavour.

Tasting Note:
Lovely weight and a silky texture on the palate, with hints of fresh red fruits and a zesty acidity finishing with a dry, impressive length.
