Quinta da Pedra Alta Pedra a Pedra Tinto, 2017 - 750ml
Pedra a Pedra Tinto is a soft, fruity and structured wine made from a blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca & Fernão Pires. It is richly flavoured with dark red fruit, lovely texture and a freshness not associated with Portuguese red wines. The wine is aged for 18 months in large old French barrels.
Quinta da Pedra Alta is located in the Cima Corgo sub region of Portugal’s famous Douro valley. It is a hot area where the vineyards are planted at heights of up to 550 meters where the temperatures are cooler. Production is focused on native grape varieties which are all planted in terraced vineyards on poor schist soils.
