Product Description
Details

The single varietal Clos Mont-Blanc Únic Syrah is a Spanish red wine produced in the southern Catalan region of Conca de Barberà, not far from the magnificent Monastery of Poblet.

It is made from 2 hectares of Syrah vines planted about 25 years ago.

Harvested by hand at the beginning of October, the grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks and then macerated for a short period of time.

After that, Clos Mont-Blanc Únic Syrah 2017 was aged in 25% French and 75% American oak barrels for 9 to 12 months.

Finally, this red wine from Conca de Barberà of the Clos Mont-Blanc winery was clarified, filtered and aged for a further 6 months before its release.

Appearance

Nose

This varietal Syrah smells of black fruit and toast, with some spicy nuances and remembrances of chocolate, black olives, pepper and balsam.

Palate

Meaty and savoury, this red wine by Clos Mont-Blanc has focus and grip. Notes of blackberries, raspberries, cocoa, flowers, spices and Mediterranean garrigue. Very good acidity, ripe tannins and long, delicately mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

The wine Clos Mont-Blanc Únic Syrah 2017 proves that the Rhône native variety has adapted very well to Conca de Barberà, a beautiful monastic land in southern Catalonia.
