Saved from extinction!

Another amazing wine for under $20 at Hopper’s Carte des Vins! The Alpha Estate Malagouzia Single Vineyard Turtles is a brilliant, pale yellow-green with a strong and lively nose.

The rare varietal of Malagousia was rescued from extinction through Vangelis Gerovassiliou’s efforts who noted its potential, and vinified it for the first time in the 70’s. This wine is made from select grapes from the oldest and best parcels of the vineyard, giving a rich character with fruity flavors balanced with crisp acidity. Best served with Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.
