    Winemaker Notes

    The vineyards are located on slopes overlooking the Mediterranean sea, where ancient olive trees grow among the vines. High inland mountains protect the vines from the harsher continental climate, producing intense and fully mature grapes, while sea breezes maintain some freshness.

    Brilliant cerise with purple highlights. Attesting to its sun-drenched Mediterranean origins, it sings with cherry fruit character, combined with blueberries and a touch of liquorice. Dry and medium bodied, the ripe cherry flavors return on the palate, with well-balanced alcohol and tannins making it very easy to drink. It finishes with persistent fruit flavors.

    Altos d'Oliva, Spain
    Named after a high vineyard area where the soil is so poor that only grapevines, olive groves and nut trees thrive, these wines benefit from a warm and sunny climate that gives great fruit intensity and richness on the palate. The winemaking is clean and modern in the best senses of the term.

    Altos d’Oliva is made at Reserva de la Tierra with input from Long Wines throughout all the winemaking process. Located in Les Borges del Camp, Tarragona, around 20km from the Mediterranean coast and run by a family with roots in Mendoza, Argentina. Chief winemaker Meritxell Vila is highly experienced with a degree in Enology and Agricultural Engineering. Her work experience at wineries all over the world has given her an international perspective.

    Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

    Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
