Characteristics of Herencia Altés Garnatxa Blanca
Herencia Altés Garnatxa Blanca is a white wine from D.O. Terra Alta, one of the most extensive wine regions in Cataluña but not very well known.
The wine is made by Herencia Altés, a small winery located in the town of Batea directed by Núria Altés.
This wine is a single variety Garnatxa Blanca, the main variety in D.O. Terra Alta and specifically from their own vineyards in the winery. The vineyards are grown on clay and limestone soils, poor in organic matter.
The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with a continental influence, characterised by very cold winters and warm and dry summers.
The harvest is done quickly to secure a good, natural acidity, this is the key to its success. As for the production, after a short maceration, the grapes are pressed and afterwards there is a fermentation.
Herencia Altés Garnatxa Blanca is a wine with an excellent quality-price ratio.

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”.
Herencia Altés is a familiar winery of DO Terra Alta that bases its philosophy on organic agriculture and experimentation to try and extract the best part of the wonderful old Grenache vines they own, some of which are over 100 years old.
