Bodegas Altza is located near the Natural Park "Serra del Montsant" in northern Priorat. The 40 year old vines are grown on terraces ranging from 390 to 450 metres above sea level and the grapes are hand harvested. Once these grapes arrive at the winery, a second selection of grapes takes place. The grapes from each plot are fermented in separate small stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature which results in a wine rich in colour and aroma. Afterwards, the wine is aged French and American oak barrels for 8 months, adding complexity, stability and elegance to the wine. 

A full bodied, velvet textured, black fruit driven red wine. Rich kirsch aromas lead to a ripe, perfumed black cherry and berry palate. With a concentration of fruit flavour and tasty bitter hints of mocha this is an authentic example of a good Priorat.

Food Pairing: Roast shoulder of lamb
