Characteristics of LaFou El Sender

LaFou El Sender is a red wine from the A.O Terra Alta region produced by LaFou. This wine is a blend of 3 different grape varieties: Grenache, Syrah and Morenillo. 

The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes being transported to the winery in boxes with a 250kg capacity. At tbe winery, the grapes are cooled in cold storage at 5 ° before being destemmed.

The grapes then ferment at a controlled temperature of 26ºC, followed by maceration which lasts for 6-10days. Grapes taken from different plots vinify independently in tanks that have a 10,000-15,000kg capacity.

Then finally before being bottled, LaFou El Sender then ages in oak barrels, 80% french 20% central european, that are between 1-4 years old.

The LaFou winery is run by the Roqueta family, who also owns the Abadal winery. The vineyards that belong to the LaFou vineyard span 60 hectares and are situated at about 400 meters above sea level. Fou, in Catalan, means ravine or narrow passage, through which rivers pass: one of the most characteristic forms of the topography of the Terra Alta.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Terra Alta

    Winery Lafou

    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”.
