Grapes Verdelho, Viognier, Arinto
Colour White
Origin Portugal, Alentejo
ABV 13.5%

Intense notes of ripe apricot and pink grapefruit. Mineral flavours with white peach and apricot skin on the palate. Mouth filling richness resulting from prolonged barrel aging and contact with lees. Will grow immensely with bottle age.

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

Has some of the Douro's Viosinho in the blend - round 15%. Around 40 - 50% in older barrels, all the components made separately, and blended at the end. Peter says it ages beautifully. Oak imparts only a tiny touch of nuttiness and creaminess, but the nose is really focused on the fruit, with a gently earthy character that is typical natural ferment. The palate has beautifully focused minerality, lovely sense of harmony, finishes with great joie de vivre.

Terras d'Alter is in the Alto Alentejo region in the south of Portugal, where the history of wine growing dates back to Roman times. This extensive history, and a focus which remains largely on native Portuguese varietals, is combined with the New World expertise of dynamic & enterprising winemaker Peter Bright, an Australian making wine in Portugal since 1982.
