Terra Alta DO
Our Alltime Bestseller!
Our Reserva vintage is one of the most well-known Spanish wines with a history of more than 70 years. Every year our winemakers are selecting the best grapes from our vineyards that we have troughout Spain, from Alicante to Catalunya. The Gran Reserva is the most popular wine of all the Casa Safra labels. For vintage 2005, the grapes are coming from a small vineyard in Terra Alta, Catalunya.
We have selected traditionally grown TEMPRANILLO and GRENACHE (from 30 old vines) and hand harvest the grapes slightly over ripened. We blend them with CABERNET SAUVIGNON grapes, hand harvested at optimal maturity. During 24 months this wine remains in French and American oak barrels. The result is a very intense deep red wine with an exuberant taste of ripe black fruits and vanilla from the oak ageing. The tannins are dry and balanced, giving the wine a long and persistent taste.
