ALTE wines are testament to everything great about high-altitude winemaking. Using only the best parcels of fruit, these single vineyard wines unveil the elegance and purity unique to our cool, sun drenched region in
ALTE, An Abbreviation from the Italian 'Terre Alte' - High Lands
ALTE wines are grown on ancient terra rossa soils in our renowned Little Boomey vineyard, a 25-year-old estate just 40 kilometres north of the town of Orange. Sitting at a cool 600 metres and enjoying the intense, high-elevation sunshine, this ideal altitude is protected from extreme weather that can affect other vineyards.
2018 ALTE Chardonnay:
Fresh aromatics of white stone fruit combined with toasty oak and yeast complexity. The medium-bodied palate shows the purity of the region with creamy stone fruit flavours balanced with zippy fresh acidity.
2017 ALTE Shiraz:
Full flavoured yet elegantly weighted - a hallmark of this exceptional vineyard. The palate shows dark red fruit flavours combined with a hint of Chinese five spice. Soft, fine tannins add structure and length.
