The traditional Spanish wine of Terra Alta is rancio, which is a heavily oxidised with a dwindling number of customers. More interesting are the new developments in terms of more modem, light, and fresh white, rosé, and red wines. Terra Alta Blanco covers a range of qualities, from fresh, light, dry vinos jovenes to full-bodied, rounded Reservas (aged in wood for a minimum of 6 months and not less than 3 years old), but also semi-sweet liquorous wines (generosos). Drink this Spanish wine (Macabeo, Garnacha Blanca) at 46.4- 50.0°F (8-10°C), Reserva Spanish wine at 46.4-53.6°F (8-12°C) and the semi-sweet or even liquorous Spanish wines at 46.4-48.2°F (8- 9°C). Terra Alta Rosados are principally vinos jovenes, made with Gamacha and intended to be drunk while young. These Spanish wines are fresh, light, and very pleasant rosados. Drinking temperature for this Spanis wine 50-53.6°F (10-12°C).
The Terra Alta reds can be young, fresh, and light, of the vinos jovenes type, but also mature, full- bodied, and well-balanced, such as their Crianza (6 months in oak and at least 3 years old) Reserva (at least 1 year in oak and 4 years old) and Gran Reserva (at least 2 year in oak and 6 years old). This sturdy Spanish wine generally has alcohol of 13-13.5%. You can drink this Spanish wine at temperature 57.2°F (14°C) for Crianza and 60.8°F (16°C) for Reserva and Gran Reserva.
