Alberta CSPC +783363 6 x 750ml per case open stock
100% Syrah, aged 10 months in French oak. The vines trained on trellising with an age of over 30 years located at an altitude of over 780m, in the Pago de Los Balagueses; an enclave of 3 hectares amidst pine tree forests, aromatic plants and almond trees. The viticulture follows natural, cultural, practices with ecological certification and yields of under 1.8kg per vine.
“Deep ruby red with purple highlights, strong aromatic intensity of red and black mature fruit, violet floral notes with subtle balsamic and Asian spice deriving from the oak. On the palate immediate abundant fruit of black and red cherries with creamy complexit y, fine grained tannins destined to polish with bottle age. Balanced alcohol and acidity, structured yet elegant with a fine sustained finish.”

90 points Wine Enthusiast ~ Cellar Selection ~ “Smoky, blackened aromas take their lead from heavy oak, which makes for a resiny, foresty nose with blackberry scents. This Syrah is saturated and full-tilt in feel. Clove, toast and blackberry flavors finish oaky and spicy. This woody monster needs time to settle and absorb more oak; drink through 2023.” ~ January 2017
