Wine Insight

The Anguera family have been farming in Montsant for seven generations. It’s not unusual for winemakers to take a different direction to their parents, but bar pulling up all their old vines, Joan and Josep have totally rethought their project and realigned their vision over the last 10 years. They started in the vineyards: working biodynamically and achieving Demeter certification in 2011; they top-grafted traditional varietals Grenache and Carignan on to existing Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon vines; and are removing trellising in favour of lower yielding gobelet vines. With fruit quality improving they were able to move to low intervention in the winery, using whole cluster ferments, old oak, and dramatically reducing sulphur use. The results are mind-blowing – balanced and elegant biodynamic wines.

Altaroses is Joan d’Anguera’s “village” Garnatxa made from younger vines of Garnatxa (10-35 years old) sourced from 9 hectares of vineyards surrounding their cellars in Darmós. As with all the wines made at the cellar it is fermented with whole clusters and indigenous yeasts, aged in neutral barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered with only a tiny amount of SO2.
