Henriques

Basic Info

Cyril Henriques is the talented winemaker who selects the plots and is in charge of the whole vinification process all the way through to bottling. Altitudes and La Linea are made from grapes selected from the best vineyards in the Roussillon region of France, situated close to the Mediterranean Sea, just 25 miles from the eastern Spanish border. This area is very warm but thanks to the altitude (600 feet), the wines have a nice mineral finish that balances out the ripeness. These cuvees are made from subtle blends of three or four grape varieties: Syrah for character, Grenache for richness, old vines of Carignan for structure and Mourvèdre for elegance. A lot of names in the area have a Spanish influence as the old border of Catalona used to be close by.
