Overview

The youngest vines of Garnatxa Negra at Herència Altés are harvested early to preserve their natural acidity and to make a fresh and zesty Rosat. This wine sees a short maceration of a few hours before pressing and fermentation to create a pale, refreshing rose. It is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
