    The highly acclaimed Alter winery was founded by José Pérez Pousa in Ribeiro on the banks of the Miño river in northwest Spain in 2014, with the wish to preserve the tradition of his land, where wine has been produced since the 2nd century BC.  The climate in Ribeiro is influenced by the Atlantic but also sheltered by the mountains. The region benefits from warm days and cool nights during the growing season, which allows the grapes to ripen fully while retaining their signature fresh acidity.

    The Alter Ribeiro Blanco is a blend of the native white varieties, Treixadura, Godello and Loureiro, fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks and then aged on lees for three to four months to add depth. The wine is semi-aromatic with aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and green apple. The palate is lively with brisk acidity, white peach and a delightful savouriness that prompts you to reach for another glass.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
