Product Description
Details

Made from low-yielding vines located on the outskirts of Batea, a village in 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 2018 was aged for 12 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.
