Herència Altés TREMENTINAIRE 2020

New

Orange wine 100% White Garnatxa with 2 years of oxidative aging

Trementinaire refers to the wise women of the mountain, healers, the witches. Aromas of ointments, herbs, plants, dried orange peel. Evoking times of when a solera barrel of wine was kept beneath every staircase, looked after by the grandmother whose job it was to top it up and ensure it never ran dry. Memories of a past time that endure in the present.

ELABORATION

A white wine produced like a red one. Grapes are harvested by hand and collected using 18-kg boxes. Destemmed and crushed, they are placed in a stainless steel tank with their skins to cool the must until the alcoholic fermentation begins with wild yeasts. The must or wine spends a full four weeks in contact with the grape skins to extract colour and aromas before being pressed and transferred into seven 300-litre of seven and eight-years-old barrels to undergo an oxidative ageing process for 24 months.

Only 2680 bottles are produced.

TASTING NOTES

Trementinaire is an orange skin-fermented wine, with a bright orange colour. Aromas of herbs and plants and dried orange peel bring to mind well-matured traditional rancio wines which used to sit in a barrel under the staircase at your grandparents’ home. Memories of a less hurried past are brought back to life. Fresh, intense, dry and elegant in the mouth.


RECOMMENDED PAIRING
Perfect for pairing with nuts, cured cheeses, smoked cheeses and cottage cheese.

Herència Altés

At Herència Altés we are yesterday's footprint in our gaze towards tomorrow.

We are land, landscape, culture, history and innovation.

The vineyard, cultivated in an ecological way and the wine in its maximum expression, are protectors of our landscape and guardians of our biodiversity. In the winery, we have an environmental project, which protects the flora and fauna indigenous of our environment.

At home, we follow a philosophy of minimal intervention, we respect the wines to maintain the essence of the fruit and thus achieve a perfect harmony between the hand of man and what the earth gives us.

Our aging room is totally underground, to have the perfect temperature and humidity throughout the year in a sustainable way. We work with large oak foudres, of 5000 and 2500 liters, with the philosophy of making long aging, but with the minimum impact of the wood.

Fresh, serene, polished and friendly wines.

Herència Altés LA XALAMERA 2019 ORG

Positioned on the east side of a plateau that slopes towards Gandesa, La Xalamera occupies 15 hectares of classic Terra Alta terroir: a thin top layer of sandy loam resting on a thick slab of calcareous limestone that at points, penetrates the surface. The upper slopes of the valley lie at 442 metres, sloping down to 402 metres, where the soil is slightly more fertile.
