Description

Zarihs Syrah by Borsao 2016

100 % Syrah from the Campo de Borja DO in northeastern Spain. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards nightly.

Opaque red-black with Crimson-purple rim. A remarkable aromatic complexity of blackberries, with a hint of oak and sweet vanilla. The nose opens up and develops notes of dark chocolate. The initial impact is very full bodied, with a plush, soft structure. Flavours of dark berries dominate; balsamic and dried plums, with notes of espresso coffee. Warm and gentle in the mouth, with soft but persistent tannins in perfect balance with the alcohol.

The maceration is between 1- 2 days and the total fermentation takes 10-12 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 22 ° to 28 °. At that time 40% of the wine is aged in new American oak barrels for 12 months, and other in stainless steel tank.

Syrah was planted 16 years ago in the foothills of the Moncayo to take advantage of the soil, sun and the uniqueness of the Cierzo, which freshens the grapes from bloom to peak maturity. The vines are 600-700 meters above sea level, in limestone soil, giving the Syrah a pleasant acidity.
