Joan d'Anguera Altaroses 2015

Altaroses

The Altaroses is Joan d'Anguera's first certified biodynamic and organic wine. The Anguera brothers have decided to label the wine as a “Granatxa,” the old Catalan name for Grenache, as an emblem of their focus on adhering to the lighter, traditional style of wines that used to be made in their home town of Darmós.

Vinification Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in concrete vats using indigenous yeasts. Aged for 12 months in old oak barrels. Naturally cold stabilized by winter’s chill and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes Fresh wild strawberries, garrigue and warm spices on the nose. Very expressive. Medium weight, with mouth-watering acidity and soft warm fruit. Soft tannins and well-balanced structure between acidity, tannin, fruit and alcohol make this extremely gulp-able.
