Hèrencia Altés, Garnatxa Negra, Terra Alta, Spain, 2018Regular price £12.00
Bright crimson in colour, the Garnatxa Negra from Terra Alta’s Herència Altés is a very expressive wine – rich with flavours of grilled plums, stewed strawberries and blood orange. A vibrant and characterful glass of wine and we can't get enough.
Grenache - or the locally styled Garnatxa - is the calling card of this up-and-coming quality wine region, and the team at Herència Altés is working tirelessly to put both their beloved region and its flagship grape variety on the world map. The estate combines carefully maintained old vine Garnatxa vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery, every inch of which is designed to lower its impact on the environment, relying almost entirely on solar power and recycling rainfall for use throughout the facility. All of the vineyards are farmed according to organic practices and most wines, including this one, are certified as organic.
