Alpha Estate Axia Red

The Wine

The Alpha AXIA red is a rich, fruity and elegant Syrah-Xinomavro blend that combines plums, spices and blueberries. Splendid, purple red color. Full mouth, with vanilla aroma, rounded tannins, balanced acidity and wood tones. Long aftertaste with intense quince aroma.

Tasting Notes

Medium ruby in colour, forward aromas of ripe blackberry, raspberry, cranberry, sour cherry, raisin and toast; extra-dry, medium to full bodied with darker fruit and spice on the palate, plush tannins and a medium finish.

The Winery
