Characteristics LaFou de Batea

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

LaFou de Batea is a red wine made by LaFou in the D.O. Terra Alta with the Garnacha Tinta and Samsó (Cariñena) varieties.

Ramón Roqueta started his Lafou Celler project in Terra Alta as a loyal supporter of the Garnacha variety and known for his winemaking at Abadal in Pla de Bages. Working alongside his technical director, Joan Soler they have a total of 12.5 hectares of their own vineyards, all located in Mas Gabrielet, an estate located north of Batea (Tarragona). This results in wines with varietal typicity and full of terroir character.

LaFou de Batea comes from vineyards aged between 40 and 70 years old, planted in predominantly calcareous soils, with a clayey and loamy clay texture, lying at more than 350 metres above sea level. The yields are low and the harvest is carried out manually.

When the LaFou de Batea grape reaches the winery, fermentation takes place in small open stainless steel tanks, using an aerial pigéage system. It then ages for 12 months in 300-litre Central European oak barrels and concrete egg vats.

The LaFou de Batea red wine is the result of a love for the terroir combined with experience. A limited production of warmth and power following the Terra Alta tradition.

Mas la Caçadora was founded in late 2003 by a group of wine lovers, the environment and the character of a region like the Priorat. Most of us have a long experience in the wine industry and wine family tradition. Situda in the village of Els Guiamets and framed in the DO Montsant The winery has a capacity of 280 hl, which produces a white, red and pink young, a barrel fermented white and red guard.
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”.
