Details for Guelbenzu Vierlas 2016
Bottle size and vintage
An original blend of varieties from the vineyards owned by Guelbenzu in Aragon and obtained through a wine-making process that endeavours to develop primary aromas and flavours.
A purplish, dark cherry colour, the wine's nose exhibits an intense, fresh aroma of red fruit and violets. Smooth and velvety on the palate, it is fresh, fruit-forward and balanced, showing length and persistence.
Aged for 2 months in 4-year casks.
Very good, subtle Syrah flavour
Considering this year seems to be all Syrah and not the blend it was in previous years, it is still a very satisfying fragrance and taste, not like a Shiraz! V. good value for money.
Bodegas Guelbenzu looks back over a long history of generations of vine growers. Founded in the 19th Century, its fame extends from the Queiles Valley, with Bodega del Jardín (in Cascante, Navarra, where the family-owned estate is located) and Bodega de la Lombana (in Vierlas, Aragon, their new venture), as far as Chile.
