2012 Alpha Estate "Hedgehog Vineyard" Xinomavro Amyndeon

SKU #1267326 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 Xinomavro Hedgehog Vineyard is the latest iteration in this bargain-priced brand, also part of this issue's focus on Amyndeon terroir. It was just recently released. It was aged for 12 of months in French oak (half new, half used). The Hedgehog is a perennial value point in the lineup these days, a wine that always provides value with some distinction. This is another beauty. Perfectly focused, it is tight and pointed, yet deep and rather lush, relatively speaking. Its oaky initial demeanor faded with aeration, leaving a wine with increasing purity of fruit. This overachiever could benefit from another year or so in the cellar, but it combines power, fine concentration and balance. It's worth leaning up.  (2/2016)

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines. Click for a list of bestselling items from Greece.
