Wine "Herencia Altes" Cupatge, Terra Alta DO, 2017
Reviews of purchase "Herencia Altes" Cupatge, Terra Alta DO, 2017
Wine bright cherry color with a purple hue.
Thanks to the refreshing acidity and soft tannins in the taste of wine, a clear structure is maintained. The dominant tones are plum and blackberry, which have a good concentration and prolong the aftertaste.
The aroma of wine is young and fresh. Shades of black berries and fruits, fragrant herbs, cocoa, violet flowers and lilacs burst from the glass.
Wine can be enjoyed with any meat dishes, sausages and tapas.
"Herencia Altes" Cupatge is made from a blend of varieties of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, collected at different times. Maturation is influenced by two types of winds blowing in this area: the cold north-westerly wind, which prevents grapes from losing their natural acidity, and the soft sea breeze, which allows long-term ripening. Both winds prevent the development of diseases of the vines and molds. Maceration and fermentation of varieties are carried out separately in steel tanks. After that, malolactic fermentation took place in concrete tanks for about 2 months. Blend "Herencia Altes" Cupatge is assembled immediately before bottling.
