Very deep coloured, with just a hint of crimson on the rim. Fresh, mineral aromas with mountain breeze clarity denote altitude and the schist and granite soils of Fonte Souto. A flinty, graphite edge reflects minerality and forest vegetation. Some discreet fruit comes through, initially blueberry and, as the wine opens, some distinctive strawberry notes. Quite reserved on the palate, beginning to show black plum, dark chocolate, and a subtle nuance of liquorice. Peppery tannins and bright acidity underpin the substantial structure, which needs some further bottle age for the wine to fully reveal its singular character.

The Fonte Souto Alfrocheiro embodies all the strengths of the property’s unique terroir: the freshness and balance afforded by the altitude and the complexity and structure provided by mature, low-yielding vines. This Alfrocheiro is the first varietal wine from Quinta da Fonte Souto, made from grapes sourced at two of its highest planted vineyards, at just over 500 metres/1,640 feet. Of uncertain origin, Alfrocheiro appeared in the early part of the last century in Portugal, valued for its adaptability and for producing structured, deep-coloured wines.
