Powerful, balanced, fragrant, and fruity, Alges has a bouquet of pure fruit, surrounded by light touch of wood that makes it elegant and subtle. Berries with a touch of jam, liquorice and cherries over mineral notes, species touch and its notable acidity result in a fresh and enjoyable wine.
Clos Pons winery is located in Les Garrigues district, in the south of the province of Lleida, in the towns of L’Albagés and La Pobla de Cérvoles.
The landscape is outlined by olive and almond trees and distinguished by its dry, arid soil. The olive tree is the most widespread crop in the region. The typical olive tree variety is the Arbequina, which has a small, round olive that produces high quality oil.
The construction of the winery completes the wine project started in 2005 by the Pons family. New technology and traditional methods are combined at this facility, where everything is designed with the idea of working with respect for quality while maintaining the maximum properties of the terroir in the wines.
