Joan d’Anguera Altaroses
Joan d’Anguera is all about purity. Purity of place, wine and people. Spain can be a great place to find value, but many of the wine’s lack purity and focus to say it politely. The reality is that many wineries/brands are overly extracted wines made for mass market appeal. Joan d’Anguera is the antisisthes of this movement and focus on authenticity of their wines rather than focus-group appeal. This is evident in every facit of the winieries apporaoch. For example, instead of labling the Altarroses bottling as a Granacha, they have opted for “Granatxa”- the old catalan term for the grape.
The wine is sumptios red fruit framed with layers of spice and earth. The wine light on it’s feet and packs endless flavor in it’s delicate frame.
