Herència Altés Benufet Garnatxa Blanca 2019
- Rich, full
- Terra Alta
Another remarkable wine for Herència Altés, one of the leading producers in Spain’s Terra Alta region - garnatxa blanca (grenache blanc) from the ‘Benufet’ vineyard, which has 100+ year old vines, all meticulously cared for and certified organic. Having visited the producer in 2018 and tasted with them numerous times, I can say, hand on heart, that this is the real deal.
Benufet shows the richer side of grenache blanc, which they call ‘an intense and mouth filling sensation’ and they are not wrong. My notes from this vintage read ‘rich and spicy, super-powerful and wonderful with food’. There is a freshness to the wine from the high altitude and layers and layers of fruit and minerality, wrapped up in a wonderful texture. Anyone who likes Alsace pinot gris or powerful Etna whites will love this wine.
“Lemon curd, light pineapple and some cream and pie crust. Medium to full body. Steely undertone to the dried fruit. Drink now.”
Full price $60.00 from the producer.
