Terra D'Alter Reserva Red 2015 Red


Based on the traditional red grape varieties of the Alto Alentejo plus a guest variety  such as Petit Verdot in 2012 to bring an interesting dimension to the wine.   

Made from selected old vine grapes grown at the higher altitudes of the Alto Alentejo.  Small tank fermentation with prolonged maceration resulted in wines, from the above  varieties, being selected by their potential for 22 months barrel aging resulting in a  rich and complex wine typical of the this special region of Portugal.
