Herència Altés – Celestrina – DO Terra Alta
Red Grenache with a litle of Syrah & Hairy Grenache.
A very gastronomic rosé with a very special liveliness.
Celastrina is a small blue butterfly. Its common name is Naiads from Greek mythology, which refers to the typical habitat of this species, near the water course, shady and humid areas.
Early manual harvest. Direct pressing with whole grapes to limit contact with the skin. Only the first fraction of the most is used, the flower most, obtained with gentle pressure. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. Bâtonnage of the fine lees for three months to achieve more creaminess in the mouth and a long shelf life.
Pale salmon-pink color with small bluish reflections. Fine and complex aroma, a mixture of floral notes and fresh fruit, with hints of Mediterranean herbs. On the palate it has a very fresh and friendly entry with a sweet sensation. Velvety mid palate, with a balance between fruit, minerality and an acidity that is present but not aggressive at all. Long and persistent finish.
