Characterful aromas with slight hints of flint, ripe peach and pear. This wine is full-bodied and rich, with excellent balance.

This wine has aromas of ripe peach and pear with hints of flint. On the palate, it is rich and well-balanced. It is refreshing and crisp on the finish, with attractive Pinot Grigio characters.

Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 when Liberty Wines, working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson, set out to produce a range of modern, fruit driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Our 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 fruit for this wine is grown in selected old vineyards with excellent south-east exposure, where growers have reduced their yields quite considerably to produce excellent quality fruit.

Bud burst was delayed by 10-12 days compared to 2018, but rainfall and high temperatures in the following weeks brought forward flowering. Overall, the grapes developed normally and in excellent condition. Yields were slightly lower than the 2018 vintage but significantly higher than in 2017.

The grapes were harvested once very ripe, then they were gently pressed and immediately cooled to preserve the aromas. Fermentation took place slowly at a controlled temperature of 18°C, avoiding any skin contact. Ageing took place in stainless-steel tanks.
