Characteristics of Herencia Altés El Convertido

Herencia Altés El Convertido is a red wine made by the Herencia Altés winery using the Garnacha variety in D.O.Ca Rioja.

Herencia Altés started out in 2010 in the town of Batea (Terra Alta). This was a project started by Núria Altés and Rafael De Haan with the aim of promoting the virtues of the Garnacha variety through organic farming. The new warehouse fits in perfectly with the environment and also uses renewable energy. Everything is done with maximum care for the environment. And although the Terra Alta is the main focus, they also work with other territories where the Garnacha variety is well-received, as is the case in the Rioja region.

The Herencia Altés El Convertido Garnacha variety comes from low-yielding bush vines in one of the coolest areas in the D.O. Ca Rioja. The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in 12 to 15 kg boxes.

Once the Herencia Altés El Convertido grapes reach the winery, they pass over the selection table, the stems are removed and they are gently pressed. They are macerated cold for 72 hours and alcoholic fermentation occurs spontaneously between 24 and 28ºC for 9 to 12 days. The wine is aged for 17 months in new French oak barrels with 4 transfers.

Herencia Altés El Convertido is a single-variety red wine that represents the freshness and aroma of the Rioja Garnacha variety.
