Details for Vallegarcía Syrah 2018
Bottle size and vintage
The Toledo mountain range (Montes de Toledo) is the hiding place of some of the most surprising wines on the present winemaking stage in Spain. And, without a shred of doubt, one of the best kept secrets is the Vallegarcía Syrah, an intensely-coloured red wine with an amazingly seductive aroma capable of showing us the beauty of this variety. It's a perfect combination of the elegance of French wines with the forcefulness of an Australian one; a combination of spices and maturity, of wind and sun.
It has a beautiful Picota cherry colour and aromas of ripe red fruits, with a clear hint of liquorice. Wide and long, this complex wine wraps itself around the inside of your mouth. Spices meet with hints of lactic tones, dark chocolate and mocha. The twelve months it spends in French oak make for a gentle tannic structure and a friendly wine – every sip fills the mouth with weight and width, but also with elegance. Violets, smoke, strawberry tree fruit, and a perfect balance between the ripeness of the grapes and a fine vegetal tone reminiscent of half-burnt vine cuttings, all come together to create an irresistible and tantalizing wine.
An energetic decanting is best to continue enjoying the apparently endless aromas and sensations the Vallegarcía Syrah can offer. After aeration, it becomes wilder, almost balsamic, while charming hints of cherry candy and subtle tones of liquorice reveal themselves.
