This premium, 100%-Garnatxa Peluda red has won tons of awards in the past. It is an often overlooked grape variety with huge potential. It’s as soft and supple a Spanish red as you’ll drink all year.

On the nose it has notes of raspberry and spices, with a bit of herbaceousness. On the tongue it’s fresh and full of cherries and ripe red summer fruits.

It’s instantly pleasurable, with lovely length, and a naughty kick of black peppercorns and cloves at the end.

"Núria Altés is a native of Batea, Terra Alta, and her family have been growers for generations. A proud Catalan, Núria is deeply immersed in the history of the region and will gladly recount the stories of her beloved land over a glass of Garnatxa Negra.

She worked in local wineries before forming a partnership with her English husband, Rafael De Haan, to start Herència Altés, 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, and the team at Herència Altés is working 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, every inch of which is designed to lower its impact on the environment, relying almost entirely on solar power and recycling rainfall for use throughout the facility.

All of the vineyards are farmed according to organic practices, with some cuvees now certified organic; full certification is expected by the end of 2018.

One of Núria`s favourite wines she makes is La Serra Negre, as it pays homage to her grandfather, someone who was 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."
