Altés Herencia Garnatxa Negra 2012

Snapseed

Altés Herencia Garnatxa Negra is a collaboration between renowned importer Eric Solomon and Nuria Altes, owner of the Herencia Altés estate. Located in the Terra Alta region of northern Spain, the estate consists of some of the oldest vineyards in the area. The family protects and cares for the old vine vineyards, devoted to crafting wines of depth and character that express the “distinct terroir, a particular place with its unique soil, aspect and climatic condition”.

Inky red-violet in colour with aromas of blackberry, cherry, and traces of damp forest floor. Smooth dry tannins balanced bright strawberry and raspberry flavours, whilst bitter cherry and dark chocolate notes comprised the clean finish. A superb value, this is a wonderful and versatile companion at the table.
