L’Estel, Herència Altés
L’Estel, Herència Altés is a full-bodied organic wine from Spain that delivers tons of depth and complexity. There are aromas and tastes of lush damsons and liquorice combining with oak giving a real heart-warmer of a wine.
Núria Altés is a native of Batea, Terra Alta, and her family have been growers for generations. She is a proud Catalan who is deeply immersed in the history of the region. Nuria will gladly recount the stories of her beloved land over a glass of Garnatxa Negra or any of her other wines. She worked in local wineries before forming a partnership with her English husband, Rafael De Haan, to start Herència Altés. This is a project proudly carrying her family`s name in tribute to their work in the vineyards of Terra Alta over many generations.
Grenache – or the locally styled Garnatxa – is the calling card of this up-and-coming quality wine region. The team at Herència Altés works tirelessly to put both their beloved region and its flagship grape variety on the world map. The estate combines carefully maintained old vine Garnatxa vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery. Everything is designed to lower its impact on the environment, with solar power and recycled rainfall used throughout the facility. All of the vineyards are farmed according to organic practices, with most cuvees now fully certified organic. One of Núria`s favourite wines she makes is La Serra Negre, as it pays homage to her grandfather; someone who was really very special in her life. Like the 100 year old vines the wine is made from, his life spanned many events and decades, and his stories never failed to make her smile.
