Product Description

VARIETIES : GARNATXA NEGRA 100% D.O. : TERRA ALTA Herencia Altés is a project a long time in the making. For generations my family has been one of grape growers, with vineyards dispersed around the village of Batea. Now, I have decided to give these grapes their own personality in the form of these hand-crafted wines. While Terra Alta is not yet a well-known region - tucked away in the south eastern corner of Catalonia it borders Aragón and Valencia - it is one of the largest areas in Catalunya under vine. With plenty of old Garnatxa bush vines, I think it is amongst the best regions in terms of quality and authenticity. CLIMATE Mediterranean with a marked continental influence bringing cold winters. The dominant winds are the Cerç a north westerly, and the Garbí, a sea breeze. SOIL TYPE Sandy (Pañal) and clay with some calcareous content. ELABORATION 100% Garnatxa Negra. We looked for a range of Garnatxa vines, some very old, others younger, to achieve complexity and balance. Of key importance was picking with a good level ripeness but avoiding excessive alcohol. TASTING NOTE Bright crimson in colour, this wine is very expressive with notes of red fruits and minerals that leap from the glass. Plenty of fruit on the palate, a touch of complexity and sweet tannins. Pairs well with grilled meats, cabrito and lamb. ANALYTICAL • ALCOHOL : 13.80% • RESIDUAL SUGAR : 0,43 g/l • TOTAL ACIDITY : 5.60 g/l
