GOLD FOR CREU CELTA 2016 AT THE SOMMELIER WINE AWARDS 2020
We are delighted to announce that Creu Celta 2016 has been awarded a Gold medal at the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020.
“This is the greatest award to date for Creu Celta. With each new vintage our wine is developing more complexity. As the vineyard gains maturity, the vines have a deeper root network & derive more flavour intensity & minerality. The newer vintages of Creu Celta are definitely a step up from the earlier releases and it is a privilege to work with Sylvia Puig, one of Catalunya & Spain’s best winemakers.” Peter McAlindon
“The Sommelier Awards is one of the most respected tasting awards in the UK. It is judged by some of the greatest tasters within these islands. In light of the recent passing of our Dad, this is a very fitting tribute. Kevin’s dream was to produce a great wine from our own Spanish vineyard.” Neal McAlindon

What the Judges say:
‘Great typicity and intensity, with a leafy character, and sour plum and sour cherry notes.’
Olivier Gasselin, OenoTrade.
‘Complex aromas of garrigue, mint, dark fruit, sticky dates, dark chocolate and coffee, with a rich palate of stewed fruits giving way to dried herbs and spice. Acidity maintains integrity, while the grippy, ripe tannins are integrated. Great to pair with fatty meats and bold flavours.’
Charlie Carter, L’ Atelier Du Vin.
