OK, so we have no clue what this means, but when we asked the guys at Alpha Box for a description of Zaptung Glera, they sent us this... "During arguably the most spirited round of Kris Kringle in recent memory, an especially benevolent Cyclops gifted Zeus the power of thunderbolts. Should the god of thunder be ever so bold as to rap at our cellar door, ‘twould be with a generous cylix of Z and a nervous wink he’d be greeted."
...Yeah, thanks guys, that's all we need to know then!! Don't worry, we've got this covered. We opened a bottle in the name of "research". Here's what we thought...
Alpha Box like all things Italian so this time they've gone for the Glera grape, which is what they use in Prosecco. No surprise then that this is a Prosecco-style wine that's a fresh, dry, thirst quencher - perfect to sip in the sun. Lightly sparkling it appears gold with a touch of bronze. With pears and apples on the nose, the palate is bright with fine acid and floral characters – a really approachable wine. And no food recommendations for this. Just enjoy with friends or loved ones and if you can find any in the UK, a whole lotta sunshine!
