Red Wine Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah 2016
Availability: In stock
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.
The red wine Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah has an elegant, cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.
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.
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.
