Product Description
Details

A rather uncommon, hence very interesting varietal Hairy Grenache, Herència Altés La Pilosa is produced from vineyards with limestone soils located near the village of Batea, in the DO Terra Alta, at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level. This Spanish red wine is produced by Herència Altés.

Hand-harvested, once in the cellar the grapes were destemmed, gently crushed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature, with daily punch-downs. After completing malolactic fermentation, the red wine Herència Altés La Pilosa 2017 was aged in 500-litre Austrian oak barrels for 10 months.

Before bottling, this red wine from Terra Alta was gently fined.

We suggest pairing this Crianza red wine with, for example, a lamb stew with vegetables.
