Terras de Alter, Terra D’Alter Telhas Tinto 2013, Vinho Regional Alentejo, Portugal
Tasting Note: The plushest of purple fruit from a Portuguese blend of syrah (95%) and viognier (5%) that benefits from indigenous-yeast fermentation.
Deep-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of macerated raspberry, red plum, fig compote, blackberry and clove baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied wine presents fruit suggested on the nose in a concentrated, yet plush style.
The wine is creamy in texture with ripe, reserved fruit and medium acidity.
