A fantastic year for the Douro Valley, this entry level Portuguese red from the stunning Symington Port house is serious quality. Incredibly floral, vibrant spicy dark fruits and fine structure are the product of one of the hottest and driest vintages on record, in which well-timed rain and cool nights created perfect conditions for superb, balanced ripeness. However this organically farmed wine goes for intense quality and food-friendly structure rather than easy, slurpy fruit. Another example of crazy Portuguese value, this is well worth a decant at the dinner table or a spell in cellar.

Overview

Grape

Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca.

Its Origins

Symington began when Andrew James Symington established himself in Porto in 1882. His subsequent acquisition of three important Port houses Warres, Dows, and Grahams became a legacy passing to his three sons, while many further acquisitions accrued a family portfolio of top quality estates whose practices and reputations have endured until the present day.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current vintage

Altano Organic Red is a well-balanced, medium to full bodied wine, with a lingering finish. Ruby coloured, it has strong aromas of ripe red fruits, flowers, and spices.
