Characteristics of Herencia Altés Benufet

Herencia Altés Benufet is a white wine produced by the winery Herencia Altés in Batea, D.O. Terra Alta.

 

The Herencia Altés winery was born in 2010, when Nuria Altés decides to buy grapes from her father and make her first wine in Batea. This is when the brand Herencia Altés came into being. 3 years later, she invested in her own small winery and acquired her first vineyard, La Serra. They currently cultivate more than 60 hectares, all of them farmed with organic methods. They have nine wines on the market and they are currently building their new winery, which has more than 4000m². It is located in the vineyard and is integrated with the surroundings.

 

Herencia Altés Benufet is a wine made from 100% White Grenache from the century-old farm Benufet, located in Serra Xalamera, on calcareous, clayey soils, which are poor in organic matter. They are manually harvested and placed in 18 kg boxes. Grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are refrigerated at 3-5ºC for 24 hours. They ferment in concrete barrels at a temperature ranging between 13 and 15ºC. Batonnage of its fine lees for 2 months. It rests partly in concrete barrels and partly in foudres.

 

Herencia Altés Benufet is a deep, fresh wine, with volume. Fruit-laden and flowery on the nose, with slight smoky hints. It is a very gastronomic wine.

Designation of Origin D.O. Terra Alta

Winery Herencia Altés

Wines from Terra Alta boast a unique character. This is down to numerous factors, including the region's unique wine culture, the location of the vineyards in the inland Mediterranean, and the abundance of native varieties including the Garnacha Blanca, whose white wines perhaps best express the unique character of the terroir. It is for this reason that these wines hold their own distinctive classification of “Terra Alta Garnacha Blanca”.
