Product Description
Details

Produced by the Albet i Noya winery, who pioneered the use of organic farming in Penedès more than three decades ago, Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah is a single estate Spanish red wine.

More specifically, it is made from 25-year-old Syrah grapevines planted at 360 metres above sea level, in a south-oriented vineyard located in Costers de Mediona, a place belonging to Costers de L'Anoia, a subzone of the DO Penedès. 

Harvested by hand, the grapes were destemmed, macerated for a period of 18 days, and fermented for 8 days at a temperature of 27ºC.

After that, this red wine from Penedès was transferred into 1st and 2nd year French oak barrels, where it was aged for 14 months.

Finally, as with Finca La Milana, one of the winery's flagship wines, Albet i Noya Col.lecció Syrah 2015 was only gently filtered, but neither clarified nor stabilized prior to its bottling.

Aerate 1 hour before drinking.

Drink through 2025.

Appearance

The red wine Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah has an elegant, cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

After an initial impression of Eastern spices and toast, this Syrah from Penedès suggests lively notes of black fruit, nuanced by hints of candies and flowers, together with notes of black olives and chocolate.

Palate

Bold, smooth and lushly textured, this organic red wine by Albet i Noya is fruit-driven and very fresh, with plenty of toasted and spicy nuances, and a touch of liquorice and aromatic herbs. Good focus and definition, with mild tannins and a long, linear finish.

Our personal opinion

An excellent organic Syrah from Penedès, Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah 2015 will beguile the lovers of this great variety.

The best thing about this wine is that it does not try to reinvent the wheel. No excentricities, but classicism at its best. Excellent fruit and good craftmanship. Review by Old Ringo (Posted on 01/04/2019)

Fully mature. No rough edges, the baby fat has gone away. Fresh and crisp, lots of flowers and terroir too. Review by Mr. Discreet (Posted on 02/10/2018)
