Intense dark red, gorgeously focused. A big wine that manages a sense of elegance along with its deep, peppery plum and blackberry flavours, which mingle enticingly on the firm, finely tuned long finish. A wine that has power, grace and charm in equal parts. Excellent aging potential. Decanting recommended.

Vineyard Site

The grapes for this wine grow in the highest section of the Sea Eagle vineyard in Finniss River, a sub region of the Adelaide Hills about 25 km southeast of McLaren Vale. The Alttus is exclusively produced in best years, and only released after a longer ripening period in the bottle. The soils are typically gravel and sand over red and orange sandstone and the vineyard falls gently away towards the northwest providing ideal exposure, warm days ensure ripe fruit flavors while the cooling breezes, which roll off the Southern Ocean in the late-afternoon, ensure excellent acid retention. In all: Finniss River is a unique South Australian microclimate. Sea level 125 m.
