Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra 2015 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Bright crimson in color, 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 tannin. Pairs well with grilled meats, cabrito and lamb.
Herencia Alt's 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 Arag_n and Valencia - it is one of the largest areas in Catalunya under vine. With plenty of old Garnatxa bush vines, I think it is among the best regions in terms of quality and authenticity. -Winemaker
