Produced by Herència Altés, Herència Altés La Pilosa is a quite uncommon, hence very interesting varietal Hairy Grenache from DO 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 half-destemmed, gently crushed, and fermented in concrete tanks under controlled temperature, with daily punch-downs.
After completing malolactic fermentation, the red wine Herència Altés La Pilosa 2021 was aged in 5,000 litre Austrian oak vats for 8 months.
Before being bottled, this red wine from Terra Alta was gently fined.
We suggest pairing this Crianza red wine with a lamb stew with vegetables.
Clean and bright, Herència Altés La Pilosa is medium purple some violet tinges.
Deep and intriguing, this varietal Hairy Grenache conveys some spicy and toasted rememebrances, with a note of red peppercorn, flowers, dry earth and red berries.
Juicy and chewy, this wine of Herència Altés is slightly wild and very fresh, with lively tannins and a very long finish with some remembrances of red berries, toast and herbs.
