Altavins is a small winery located in the Terra Alta D.O., southwest of Catalonia. It was founded in 2001 by Joan Bautista and Jordi Casado. Their vineyards are planted between 350-500 meters above sea level on a variety of soils, well drained, rich in lime and low in organic matter. The nature of the soils provides their grapes with an exceptionally high concentration of minerals, this together with the considerable difference of temperature between nights and days while the grapes are ripening maximises the aromas and flavours of the grapes. Actually, the winery produces a nice range of the highest quality wines to suit all possible tastes.
Tasting Notes: A developed nose of matured dark fruits, fruit cake aromas combined with cocoa and spiced notes. Smooth textured and very approachable with marked ripe fruit, good acidity and pleasant tannins. Spice on the lengthy finish.
Notes: Drinking nicely now through 2024
