Characteristics Nuestra Señora del Portal Rosado
Nuestra Señora del Portal Rosado is a rosé wine produced in D.O. Terra Alta by Celler Piñol, in Batea, west of Tarragona.
Celler Piñol is a family-run winery founded in 1947, producing mainly handcrafted wine. It was not until 1995 that they bottled their first wine. They manage 17 hectares, making wines with high expression and complexity, with local and foreign varieties. They advocate for local varieties, such as the White Grenache, the Carignan and the Morenillo. With other producers of the area, they are making a great effort to bring back the Morenillo variety, which is almost abandoned and is only used to complete coupages with other grapes.
The vineyard of Celler Piñol is located in Batea, between 400 and 500 metres of altitude, planted mainly on clayey-calcareous soils. The climate is Mediterranean. They carry out organic cultivation in the entire vineyard.
Nuestra Señora del Portal Rosado is a wine made from Grenacheand Syrah, from vineyards that are located at 450 metres above sea level, planted on clayey-calcareous soils that are poor in organic matter.
They are manually harvested and placed in 15kg boxes. Once they arrive at the winery, they go through maceration for a few hours. Once the must has gone through the saignée, its starts the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature.
