Alpha Zeta ‘G’ Garganega

Italy, Veneto

4.00 out of 5
(1 customer review)

Alpha Zeta ‘G’ Garganega is a modern, fruit driven wine, lively and crisp, with a delicate honey and almond character finished with a twist of lime. Gold in colour, this wine has a fresh, aromatic nose with perfumes of acacia blossom and a touch of dried herbs. On the palate, the Garganega is lively with a rich minerality and a clean, zesty finish.

Origin

Grapes are selected from the hillside vineyards in the Valpantena Valley. Production in the area – including the two famous Soave and Valpolicella DOCs – has expanded rapidly over the years; however, the producers continue to source from the original sites above the fertile plains of the Adige river, where yields are closely monitored to produce quality grapes.

Grape Variety

100% Garganega – the great grape of Soave.

Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed and crushed before juice is naturally settled. Fermentation takes place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures to preserve the fresh fruit flavours in the wine, with a small portion (20%) fermented in larger second fill oak barrels to add greater texture. Held in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.

Alcohol Percentage

12.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 18 months.

Producer

Alpha Zeta is a Liberty Wine venture, this wine produced by Luca Degani, with years of experience at Cantina Valpantena, and leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson. Its vision is to combine both international and home-grown expertise to produce a range of high quality wines from indigenous grape varieties. Matt works closely with local growers to select parcels of fruit, rather than purchasing bulk wine like many do in the area.

Food Match

Fine with summer salads and lighter bodied white meats and fish – would even cut through grilled sardines for example.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

    A lively and crisp wine with a delicate honey and almond character and a clean, zesty finish with a twist of lime. Great with dressed crab.
