Herencia Altes

Benufet Garnatxa Blanca 2019

MICHAEL COOPER
9.1

I don’t understand why the average rating from everyone else is 8.7? I am tasting the latest vintage 2019 three months after bottling and I think it’s delicious. Which is hard for me to say because Herencia Altes is competition for my wines and they sell their entry level wines at prices so low that it’s absolutely impossible to turn a profit or compete with them. This wine has been aged in concrete semi-oval tanks on lees for 2 months with Battonage and then 6 months without the lees. On the nose it has medium(+) aromas and flavours and it almost seems like it has been fermented in oak. Medium(+) body, the alcohol is high 14% and while it is fairly supported and balanced by the ripe and expressive citrus fruit and the medium acidity, the alcohol lingers on and warms your chest. The finish is medium(+) and elegant. #terraalta #spain #garnachablanca #grenacheblanc — 6 days ago

Smells a bit funky at the beginning, this tastes of wet hay, a bit spritzy. Reminds me of wine in Georgia. — 5 days ago
