Did you know? The vineyard name is Hedgehog because it is an ancient nesting area for the local hedgehog species that Alpha Estate continues to preserve and protect.

Flavour notes:

Aged twelve months in French oak barrel and and another twelve months in the bottle before going on the market.

A complex wine with a bright purple-red colour, beautiful hints of vanilla, pepper and cloves. 

This is a full-bodied wine with rounded tannins, well integrated wood and leather tones and a long lasting aftertaste with intense quince aroma.

TGL recommendation:

Seared spring lamb, slow oven braised okra & Tinos graviera

Grilled best end of veal, mavromatika fasolia (black eyed bean, tomatoes & olives salad)

Tigania (home made lamb sausage & sweetbreads, shallots, peppers), sourdough bruschetta
