Product Description
Details

Made by Herència AltésHerència Altés La Pilosa is a quite uncommon, hence very interesting varietal Hairy Grenache from Terra Alta, an up-and-coming wine region in southern Catalonia. 

This varietal Spanish red wine is produced from vineyards with limestone soils situated at 350 metres of altitude.

Hand-harvested and carefully selected, 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 2018 was aged in 5,000 litre Austrian oak vats for 28 months.

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

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