Nuria Altes comes from a long line of Catalonia vine growers. Herencia Altes is an extension of her decision to start working with the vines her grandfather planted long ago. Terra Alta is in the east of Catalonia, in the shadow of the Pyrenees, swept constantly by the alternating continental and Mediterranean winds. All things garnatxa (garnacha, grenache) are planted here. Our focus here is the garnatxa blanca, from which the dark skinned version mutated centuries ago. With its spritely acidity, subtle white peach, and creamy almond, this would gladly play foil to Mediterranean cuisine of any sort, with bivalves a first instinct.
