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 tannins. Pairs well with grilled meats, cabrito, or lamb.
100% Garnatxa Negra. Nuria Altes, like many other young vintners in Spain and elsewhere, comes from a family who has grown grapes for generations. Tucked away in a remote corner of Catalunya, Nuria's project, Herencia Altes is situated outside the village of Batea, in Terra Alta, a little known DO southwest of the Priorat. Remarkably Terra Alta is one of the largest winegrowing regions in Cataluyna and one which few are aware—something Nuria has set about changing.
