Region: Priorat, Spain
Creu Celta 2017
Creu Celta comes from Salanques, one of the coolest ‘climats’ in Priorat.
Direct Wine Shipments established the vineyard in this remarkable region in 2003.
A unique blend of Garnacha, Syrah, Merlot
All fruit has been sourced from our vineyard in Salanques, one of the coolest ‘terroirs’ in Priorat. Rich, complex and full bodied, opulent dark spicy fruit flavours are lifted by a fresh finish.
Great with steak, slow cooked meat dishes and hard cheese varieties. Also wonderful with many vegan and vegetarian recipes such as nut roasts, mushroom dishes, stews and milder curries.
2017: 89/100 “Elegant and expressive nose. Silky soft fruit with smooth tannins with well-integrated alcohol. Long finish.” Decanter World Wine Awards 2021
A great follow on to the GOLD MEDAL winning 2016.
2016: GOLD – Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
“Opaque purple rim. Pronounced, youthful nose, blackberry, vanilla, black cherry, dark chocolate, sweet spice. Firm acidity allied to high but fine dusty tannins, baked dark fruit, plum jam, lovely balance of structure and fruit, oak beautifully integrated… This is a very serious wine.” (Michael Palij M.W.)
