Terra d'Alter 2012 Siria (Alentejo)
Siria is the ancestral name for the grape more commonly called Ripeiro. Peter located a small plot of old vines of exceptional quality for this varietal bottling and 2012 is its first vintage. It is a plangently expressive, lithe and completely dry wine with a distinctive flavour and unusual length. In its fifth year now, it remains pale, fresh and vigorous. Ridiculous quality for the money.
