Characteristics of Tempus

Tempus is a red wine from D.O. Terra Alta produced by Altavins Viticultors. This wine is a coupage of the varieties Syrah (45%), Grenache (25%), Carignan (15%) and Merlot (15%).

The grapes used in Tempus come from vineyards that are over 30 years old, located in two small farms of very low production in the town of Batea. The harvesting of the berries is entirely manual, and they are transported in small boxes, in order to preserve the qualities of the bunches and make sure they do not break.

When they arrive at the winery, the grapes used in Tempus macerate for 22 days in stainless steel deposits. Then, in the same containers, they go through the fermentation with the skins at a controlled temperature. This way, they manage to achieve structured and complex wine.

After the various stages of winemaking, Tempus rests for ten months in French oak barrels. Before it is launched on the market, it ages for around a year in the bottle.

Altavins Viticultors is the result of the effort of three partners. The current winery was founded in 2003, but the dream began in 1999. Located in the town of Batea, near Tarragona, the winery currently has 14 hectares of vineyards.

Sight Vivid color. Nose Aromas of black plums and strawberries. Vanilla and cocoa with spicy clove. Taste Nice, meaty, with a good level of acidity to counterbalance the warmth of alcohol and pleasant tannins. Persistent and long finish.

Winery Altavins Viticultors

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”.
