2007 Altas Quintas Obsessão red
"A wine with unparalleled characteristics for a given region should assume a rightful leading role, as its distinctiveness is inherent in both the native terroir and our obsession with crafting nothing less than great wines. It is this difference imparted by the Altas Quintas terroir that we strive for our wines to express. The altitude of the vineyard, the properties of the mountain soil and a unique mesoclimate allow for wines with an unrivalled balance of acidity in the whole of Alentejo. Combining the prime terroir with an obsession for superior winemaking, we are committed to greatly reducing production yield, using oak vats for fermentation and ageing wine in new barrels for as long as necessary. Therefore, that we can produce elegant wines that amaze, astound and, above all, provide an endless source of pleasure to whoever dares put us to the test. Now, it's your turn."
