2019 Malagousia Alpha Estate from Florina in Macedonia, Greece
This white wine is light yellow in color with greenish tints. It is well-structured and has intense, classic aromas of rose petal, white florals and sweet spices, melon, lychee, and a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate, you'll notice flavors of citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of mountain herbs and a touch of minerals. The crisp acidity and long, lingering finish of this wine make it a great pairing for green salads, grilled vegetables, and shellfish.
2016 Xinomavro Hedgehog Alpha Estate from Amyndeon, Florina, Greece
This wine is bright purplish-red in color with complex aromas of forest red berries, leather, and warm spice. It boasts flavors of ripe blackberry, red cherries, and touches of vanilla. It is a full-bodied red with rounded tannins, balanced acidity, and well-integrated wood tones, making it a perfect match for barbecued red meats, shrimp saganaki, and bold cheeses.
