"The intriguing nose of the 2015 Benufet is already developing a petrol-like note combined with the meaty white fruit Garnacha Blanca is able to achieve, especially from extremely old vines like this. There is also a faint peachy pit note. The palate is very tasty, it makes you salivate. There is a salty feeling to this that I love. It makes it very tasty. It should age nicely. 7,500 bottles."

View all from Herencia Altes
Nuria Altes, like many other young vintners in Spain, comes from a family who has grown grapes for generations. Tucked away in a remote corner of Catalunya, Nuria's new project, Herencia Altes is situated outside the village of Batea, in Terra Alta, a little known DO southwest of the Priorat. Remarkably Terra Alta is one of the largest wine growing regions in Cataluyna and one, of which few are aware – something Nuria has set about changing. Having grown up in the vines that her grandfather tended, Nuria has known these vineyards since her childhood and made the decision in 2010 to stop selling her fruit to the local cooperative and to instead make her own wines. In this project she is assisted by her partner Rafael de Haan and together they inaugurated a new cellar for the 2016 vintage located in her hometown of Batea.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

late summer sipper

"If you want to think outside the box, try this tasty garnacha blanca from Spain. Nice acidity like a Sancere with a hint of stone fruit such as peach. Perfect for this time of year. Any kind of shellfish should pair well with this wine. Enjoy this while summer is still here!"
