Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Herencia Altés La Serra Negre 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.

 

Heredia Altés La Serra Negre is a wine made with Red Grenache and Carignan from the farm La Serra, located at an altitude of 420 to 450 metres, on clayey and calcareous soils poor in organic matter. 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 3-5 ºC for 24 hours. Deposited in 1500-litre vats, they go through a cold maceration for about 5 days. The fermentation lasts between 10 and 15 days, and it is carried out at controlled temperature, between 23 and 26 °C. It undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, where it remains for a year.

 

Heredia Altés La Serra Negre is a powerful, concentrated and deep wine. It stands out for its notes of ripe black fruit with a balsamic background. A wine of maximum expression, true to where it is born.

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”.
