Type of Wine: White wine
Main grape variety: White Garnacha from Finca Benufet, located in the highest part of the Sierra,
Winery: Herencia Altes
Heritage Altes Benufet is a monovarietal of Garnatxa Blanca of old vines, cultivated at 450 meters in clay and calcareous soils, poor in organic matter
The wine Herencia Altes Benufet is made with a manual harvest in boxes of 18 kilos, with selection in the vineyard. Once in the cellar, the selected bunches are cooled to 3ºC or 5ºC for 24 hours. The whole grape is then pressed to limit the extraction of polyphenols. And after the static settling, starts the fermentation at 13 or 15 ºC in concrete vats. It rests in concrete, and a small percentage of the wine in foudres, with removed from the fine lees for about two months. Light clarification and filtration before bottling. In the tasting, the most surprising is the nose, intense fruit aromas, white fruit in bloom and ripe white fruit, well combined with the light touch of wood. In the mouth, meaty but fresh, with a lively, long and deep acidity.
