Product Description
Details

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

It is made from 25-year-old Syrah vines planted at 360 metres, in a south-oriented vineyard located in Costers de Mediona, a place belonging to Costers de L'Anoia, a subzone of 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 and American 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 2018 was only gently filtered, but neither clarified nor stabilized prior to its bottling.

Aerate this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah is deep ruby with a garnet rim.

Nose

After an initial impression of Eastern spices and toast, this varietal Syrah suggests lively notes of black fruit, nuanced by hints of cocoa and flowers, and notes of black olives and dry earth.

Palate

Bold, smooth and lushly textured, this wine from 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 red wine from Penedès, Albet i Noya Col·lecció Syrah 2018 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.

Fully mature. No rough edges, the baby fat has gone away. Fresh and crisp, lots of flowers and terroir too.
