Made from low-yielding vines located on the outskirts of Batea, a village belonging to the DO Terra Alta, Herència Altés L’Estel is a blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. This Spanish red wine was entirely produced from estate-owned vineyards.
After a manual harvest, each variety was separately vinified. The grapes were cold-macerated for about 24 hours, destemmed, gently crushed, and then transferred into 1,500-litre oak vats and 5,000-litre stainless steel tanks.
After a 5 day maceration, they were fermented for 10 to 15 days under controlled temperature, after which they were transferred into oak barrels, where they completed malolactic fermentation. Herència Altés L’Estel 2016 was aged for 4 months in the barrels. Before bottling, the wine was clarified and filtered.
Pair this red wine from Terra Alta with BBQ'd meat, cold cuts and aged cheese.
The red wine Herència Altés L’Estel is bright red, with a violet rim.
This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah conveys aromas of juicy red fruit, with hints of black olives, flowers and flowers, and a toasted and spicy note.
This wine of bodega Herència Altés has an excellent acidity and smooth tannins. Fruit-driven, it is a powerful wine, but in a controlled, gentle manner. Long finish, with some toasty and earthy remembrances.
