“Very dry, sparkling Riesling from a maker often known to leave a little sugar in his wines. Not here though. Loads of fruit, searing acidity and with a slight lemon pith edge that helps keep everything nicely balanced. A little something for everyone here. Pop!”
“Peach, honeysuckle and latex are all classic Riesling tasting notes, and this has those in abundance. A slight creamy texture not often associated with the grape variety adds another layer to this excellent wine. Moreish and delicious.”
“A round of applause for Kevin, please! We found so many fantastic things in this wine but to narrow it down, two words would be 'subtle' and 'sleek'. Oregano, basil but the Greek version, white pepper, ripe plums and something cherry cola-like going on. The list goes on but we just saw you yawn. Just pop it into your cart safe in the knowledge you will have done a good thing. Clap...Clap...”
“Walnuts, dates and raspberry compote mingle in the glass with cigar box and Assam tea leaf aromas. Rich, pure and complex with a lovely balanced freshness. Don't wait around till next Xmas to treat yourself NOW.”

MEET THE PRODUCERS
Quinta da Pedra Alta’s entire ethos was founded on a group of good friends who wanted their dream of growing and making wine all over the world to become a reality. From leafy Essex to Portugal’s Douro Valley, via the Barossa in Australia, it’s been a long journey, but their dream has finally come true. Combining a love of wine and nature, Quinta da Pedra Alta is the culmination of a desire to harness the considerable combined expertise of Matt Gant, their Aussie-based winemaker and João Pires, their Douro Valley residing winemaker. Matt regularly flies to Portugal to help with the harvest while João runs the winery and vineyard, year-round.
Matt is a partner in, and winemaker at, the renowned First Drop Wines in the Barossa Valley. Always looking to expand his winemaking horizons he developed a considerable interest in Portugal, particularly the Douro Valley.
Born and raised in Alijó in the Duoro, João has been making wine for over 20 years. He first met Matt while working on the 2007 harvest in the Alentejo and has continued to make wine in both the northern and southern hemispheres ever since.
Isabelle is the vineyard and winery owner who has lived in France, Germany and Portugal and travelled extensively around the world, working for luxury beauty brands. When asked, she will always say that wine and laughter, friends and family are the best anti-ageing remedies available. So when the opportunity arose to acquire the Duoro vineyards João had been working in since 2009, they jumped at the chance. Boasting a spectacular location and being in a winemaking region with enormous potential, it was the perfect place to break bread and make wine with friends and family.
Luis, Mónica and Andy complete the extended family. Luis and Mónica have been working at the Quinta for as long as João and continue to work their financial and administrative magic, keeping everything ticking over beautifully. Andy joined the team as Commercial Director after a long career in the UK wine trade. Managing with passion and dedication, he lives and breathes Quinta da Pedra Alta.
