The Celeste by Miguel Torres is a pure red wine from Tempranillo grapes and is presented in the glass in a deep dark cherry red with violet reflections.
This red wine has a very aromatic bouquet of juicy red and black fruits - it presents in particular heart cherries and blackberries. On the palate, too, the aromas of the nose reveal themselves and are underlined by nuances of blueberries, freshly ground pepper and liquorice with fine spice.
This wine is wonderfully full-bodied and velvety soft with sweetly matured tannins, which are well integrated into the full-bodied body. The finale is wonderfully spicy-aromatic and long-lasting.
Vinification of Miguel Torres Celeste Crianza
The harvesting by hand is carried out in September. In the winery, the grapes are first cold-mashed and fermented within one week at a controlled temperature of 25 to 30°C in a stainless steel tank. After the total mashing time, the biological acid degradation takes place in oak barrels. The red wine matures for two months on the fine yeasts and is aged for twelve months in American and French oak barrels.
Food recommendation for the Celeste Crianza by Miguel Torres
The Miguel Torres Celeste Crianza goes perfectly with strong meat dishes such as braised lamb with Mediterranean herbs, beef from the grill or game birds.
