Alpha Estate Turtles Vineyard Malagouzia 2017
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Malagouzia Turtles Vineyard is unoaked and comes in at 13.2% alcohol. As with most of the better versions of this grape, it is fun just to smell. It could, perhaps, use a little more intensity, but the purity of fruit is impressive, and the concentration is reasonable for the grape. Particularly enjoyable are the dry, controlled bursts of pear and peach mingling together on the finish. I wouldn't say this is their best-ever version, but it is still a hard-to-resist, refreshing white at a nice price. As always, drink it young and fresh for best results. It will be great this summer.
Wine SpectatorA light- to medium-bodied white, with sleek acidity, this offers pretty lime blossom, apricot and Thai basil notes. Creamy. Drink now through 2020. 5,000 cases made.
