Alfrocheiro, Terra D'Alter

Alfrocheiro, Terra D'Alter

Ref: A081216

100% Alfrocheiro, Boavista Vineyard

Afrocheiro is a unique Portuguese grape variety with quite small bunches and berries reminiscent of Pinot Noir. This delicious example shows ripe notes of dark cherry and spice on the nose; on the palate, bright cherry and red stone fruits with great acidity, silky, rich tannins and a long, spicy finish. The Terra d'Alter estate is situated in Portugal's most southern wine region, where dynamic Aussie winemaker, Peter Bright has been making wine since 1982. 2016 14% Abv

Low yielding vineyard, handpicked fruit. Crushing followed by 2 day cold maceration in small stainless steel tanks with 20% whole bunches, fermentation at 20ºC to 29ºC. Post-fermentation maceration for 3 days then drained/pressed straight to new/1 use oak barrels followed by m/l fermentation and 8 months maturation.

Jim Budd "another good vintage from this far flung part of the Loire".
Bright raspberry flavours on the palate with an underlying complexity makes this an outstanding wine
