Characteristics of Herencia Altés La Peluda
Herencia Altés L’Estel is a red 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 La Peluda is a wine made with Garnacha Peluda, a variety with a similar ripening as Red Grenache but harvested separately for this wine. The vintage is manual, in 18-kg boxes, with grape selection in the vineyard. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at 23-26 °C with daily pump-overs. Malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place in new 500-litre French and Hungarian oak barrels, where it remains for 10 months.
Herencia Altés La Peluda is a meaty, opulent and refined wine. Elegant and fresh, this Garnacha Peluda is considered by Núria as her Pinot Noir.

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.
