Características de Portal
Portal is a red wine from the IO Terra Alta prepared by Celler Piñol. The winery is located in the town of Batea, west of Tarragona.
Portal is a blend of Grenache (60%), Carignan (15%), Merlot (10%) and Syrah (15%). The grapes come from vineyards aged between 15 and 35 years, planted on clay-limestone soils about 450 metres above sea level.
Its development begins with a manual harvest in early October and with a careful selection of clusters. Once in the winery, each variety undergoes vinification separately to respect their phenolic potential.
After this process, a blend of all varieties is performed before further aging.
The aging lasts 12 months and is carried out in barrels of French and American oak. We recommend decanting the wine for half an hour before consuming.
Serve at 16ºC
