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.
