Wine Maker Notes - The Altaroses is the spiritual successor of Joan d'Anguera's Garnatxa. The Anguera brothers have decided to label the wine as a Granatxa, the old Catalan name for Garnacha, as an emblem of their focus on adhering to the lighter, traditional style of wines that used to be made in Montsant. Biodynamic certification is currently pending and should be completed by 2012.
Tasting Notes - Fresh wild strawberries, garrigue and warm spices on the nose. Very expressive. Medium weight, with mouth-watering acidity and soft warm fruit. Soft tannins and well-balanced structure between acidity, tannin, fruit and alcohol make this extremely gulp-able.
