Product Description
Details

An extremely interesting Spanish red wine made by the Altavins winery, Almodí is produced in the DO Terra Alta, Catalonia's southernmost wine region. 

The interest resides in the fact that it is entirely crafted from Hairy Grenache (Garnacha Peluda), a little-known mutation of Grenache indigenous to northern Catalonia which produces wines that usually are slightly less expressive, though more subtle and elegant, than the wines made from the traditional red Grenache.

Harvested by hand and carefully selected, the grapes were destemmed, macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then Almodí 2019 was aged for a brief period of 4 months in French oak barrels.

This is a very interesting red wine from Terra Alta.

Appearance

The red wine from Terra Alta Almodí has a clean, bright, high purple robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This varietal Hairy Grenache by the Altavins winery suggests aromas of wild berries, very pure and expressive, along with hints of earth, liquorice, aniseed and some toasted remembrances.

Palate

This young red wine of Altavins is fresh and meaty, though not explosively fruity. It has a somewhat dark, deep character that we find extremely attractive. Acidity is crisp and tannins are delicious. Long finish with remembrances of dry earth and red berries.

Our personal opinion

A wine of great drinkability, Almodí 2019 brings a good opportunity to get to know an esoteric native grape at a superb price.

Rapidly becoming one of my favourite values, this Garnacha peluda is super smooth and fresh. Mediterranean, but not over the top.
