Tinto - Pedra a Pedra - Quinta da Pedra Alta - Douro - Portugal
Quinta da Pedra Alta
In 1761, Portugal's de facto ruler, the Marquis of Pombal, ordered stone markers be placed around the Douro to delineate its best vineyards - Quinta da Pedra Alta was the only producer to have three markers on its property. A fruit-driven, supple expression of Portugal's myriad indigenous grape varieties, this has drinkability written all over it: soft and brambly, yet with pleasing tannic bite. Best decanted.
