This finely structured wine with its intense acidity and tight tannins has a cool, high-altitude feel to it. It's a single vineyard wine from Quinta Terra, fresh and with red currant acidity. The wine can be drunk, although the acidity is such that it will be better to wait until the end of 2016 for it soften.
