Herència Altés Garnatxa Rosat comes from younger estate vines of Garnatxa planted in the calcareous and sandy soils in the village of Batea. As with their Garnatxa Blanca, this wine is picked early to provide a refreshing balance to the sweet, red-fruit and peppery character of Garnatxa Negra. When the clusters arrive at the cellar, they are destemmed and crushed, then spend 2-3 hours chilling and macerating before pressing. This ensures a delicate pink color to the wine and floral and pepper aromas from the short skin contact. The wine is then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks—4,000 bottles produced annually.
