'C' Chardonnay IGT
Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 to produce a range of modern, fruit-driven wines from Italy. The result is a range of wines that offer great value, quality, balance and typicity.
Straw yellow and bright in the glass, this wine is aromatic and concentrated with a thread of minerality. The palate is clean, fresh and fruit driven, with a medium-bodied mouth-feel and long finish.
The grapes were hand harvested, de-stemmed, crushed and chilled on the way to the press with no addition of sulphur. The juice was naturally settled, racked and cultured yeasts were added to initiate fermentation which took place at 12-14°C. Half the wine was fermented in oak, and one third of the blend was put through malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity.
