Alpha Zeta Soave
ALPHA ZETA COOP, VERONA / 100% GARGANEGA / BENCHMARK SOAVE
Liberty Wines, own label Soave made by flying Kiwi winemaker, Matt Thompson.
Pale lemon in colour with clean, bright aromas of almond blossom. With fresh acidity, the palate is ripe and concentrated, full of apple and pear flavours. The finish is lively and crisp.
With increased yields and production extending beyond the original 'Classico' hills, Soave is a much denigrated currency but the real thing is another story.
Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 when Liberty Wines set out to produce a range of modern, fruit-driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson, the 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.
