Terra d'Alter 2018 Alfrocheiro (Alentejo)
It is not every producer who is attracted to Alicante Bouschet, but Peter Bright never shrinks from an interesting engagement. The deep hue of this “cépage teinturier” is a given. But what took us completely by surprise was the relative finesse and purity of the fruit, as well as the innate balance of such a rollicking, high-octane wine. He takes it to new heights of interest and class in every vintage. We would probably garner more interest if we doubled the price, which would be justified by its quality. There is no bigger bargain in our portfolio. Sumptuous beyond belief, and bursting with gorgeous spicy fruit.
