Market Price
To show you the value you're getting as an Angel...

Every month, we benchmark a selection of our wines against up to three comparable wines on the market. The Market Price is based on the price of those wines.

What do we mean by benchmark? We order the wines in and taste them blind against our own, or we use our market knowledge (over 30 years between us) to set an industry standard Market Price.

If you buy one of our wines and disagree with the Market Price, or it's not your cup of tea, we'll give you your money back.

About the wine

Garnacha's juiciness, Carignan's character and Syrah's strength come together in this beautifully balanced wine packed with juicy blackberries and succulent plum fruit.
  • We’ve made $5 million available to help struggling wineries to survive and come out the other side of this Covid crisis. The closure of bars and restaurants across the globe has been a disaster for the independent winemakers who supply them. The little guys, without connections to the big supermarkets, are the ones who are suffering the most.

  • Nuria Altés and Rafael de Haan, from the Terra Alta region of Spain, are the exact kind of people we were hoping to help with our Covid-19 support fund. The events of the past couple of months have hit their business hard. The top-end restaurants, hotels and bars that were their main customers have been closed. Leaving them with a lot of unsold wine.

  • Garnacha's juiciness, Carignan's character and Syrah's strength come together in this beautifully balanced wine packed with juicy blackberries and succulent plum fruit.

Serving advice
Serve at 12-14°C

Food match
Roast chicken/ pork would work well with this serious but lighter style of wine. Lighter risotto and pasta dishes making use of mushroom, pork and tomato ingredients.

Meet the winemaker - Núria Altés and Rafael de Haan

  • Núria Altés comes from a long line of grape-growers. From playing in her grandfather’s vines as a child to bottling her first wine with her father’s grapes, Núria is proud of her winemaking roots. So in 2010 Núria and her partner Rafael set up a little winery in the Terra Alta region - called Herència Altés. 
  • What makes their wines so special, is the grapes come exclusively from her own family vineyards. And mostly from old vines that are between 40 and 90 years old, so you get a concentration of flavour like nowhere else.
  • They’ve gone from strength to strength, picking up awards and Parker Points galore. That was until Covid-19 turned their world upside down. Luckily, 3,000 Angels stepped in and snapped a case of their premium wines. Angel support means they can plan their future harvests with confidence.
