The Oddbins Take

We're sure English cricket fans would resent admitting it but sometimes the occasion calls for an Australian. Times such as operating a barbeque on Christmas day, trying to usher an offensively large spider out of your 'dunny' or upsetting sommeliers by asking for 'French Shiraz.' (It continues to amaze us, the sheer number of banal stereotypes we get into our tasting notes.) Portuguese winery, Terras De Alter realised they were in such a situation.


The founding families of Sociedade Agrícola das Antas and Sociedade Agrícola do Monte Barrão precured the services of legendary Australian oenologist Peter Bright. Peter highlights traditional Portuguese grape varieties but give the wines a new world twist by listing the grape varieties on the front label and delivers a wine with extraordinary intense fruit flavours. Well done Peter, you might even have won over the 'Barmy Army' with this stonker. Just don't bring up ball tampering!
