Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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 4000 m². It is located in the vineyard and is integrated with the surroundings.

 

Herencia Altés L’Estel is a wine made from Grenache, Carignanand Syrah from their own vineyards and from low-yield plots. They are manually harvested and placed in 18 kg boxes. Grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are refrigerated at 3-5ºC for 24 hours. Before they are transferred to 5000-litre stainless steel tanks and 1500-litre oak vats, it goes through cold maceration for 5 days. It ferments at a controlled temperature of 23-26ºC for 10 to 15 days. It goes through malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, where it remains for 4 months.

 

Herencia Altés L’Estel is an intense, sweet and fresh wine. Good balance between the ripe black fruit and the roasted notes of ageing.

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.
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”.
