Agrícola de Cadalso Syrah 2017 is made with 20-year-old Syrah variety that comes from Paraje de los Pasaderos, a 2-hectare vineyard with granite soil and a contribution of quartz, located at an altitude of 700 metres. It was vinified in concrete tanks with the destemmed grapes, and fermented with indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature. It was aged for 6 months in concrete tanks.
TASTING NOTES (Published in El Club February 2020)
Agrícola de Cadalso Syrah 2017 has a deep, very bright garnet colour. On the nose it expresses an intense fruit character with hints of currant and blueberry jam together with a touch of cherries in liquor, quince meat and a subtle note of dried flowers and toasted caramel. On the palate it envelops the mouth with a voluminous and velvety texture formed by tannins without edges and melted together. A good freshness provides a good balance and enhances the final aromas of fresh fruit, violet and pink pepper. A full-bodied and fresh red wine, ideal to accompany stewed poultry and pork with creamy sauces, mountain rice and cured cow and sheep cheeses. To be enjoyed now or in the next 3 years served between 15 and 17ºC, in the New World Syrah glass from the Veritas series by Riedel (449/30) or in the Chianti glass from the Vinum series by Riedel (6416/15).
"Agrícola de Cadalso Syrah 2017 has a fruity aftertaste and a varietal typicity accompanied by vegetal character", describe it its producers.
