6 bottles of Creu Celta 2016
Creu Celta comes from Salanques, one of the coolest ‘climats’ in Priorat.
Direct Wine Shipments established the vineyard in this remarkable region in 2003.
Made by Silvia Puig ex-Vega Sicilia Winemaker.
Made from Garnaxta (Grenache), Syrah.
Full flavoured red with chocolate cherry, plum, pine and smoky nuances. Rich, complex and satisfying.
Food Match: Great with Steak, slow cooked meat dishes and firm and hard cheese varieties.
Decant before serving.
‘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.
