Red Wine Finca Siós 2017
Availability: In stock
Produced in the western Catalan region of Costers del Segre, Finca Siós is a quite interesting Spanish red wine.
Fist, it is made from a blend of organically farmed Grenache and Syrah vines planted amidst a landscape of olive trees and fruit trees. They were harvested by hand, selected both on site and in the cellar.
Most interestingly, the wine was then fermented in open-air stone vats dating from the XIIth century and located near the vineyards.
After that, this red wine from Costers del Segre underwent malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Finally, Finca Siós 2017 was aged in 500-litre 2nd year French oak barrels for 12 months. Before hitting the market, this Crianza red wine of the Costers del Sió winery was aged for some months in the bottle.
Production around 4,000 bottles.
The red wine Finca Siós is bright ruby with a garnet rim.
Conveying a very pure, ort of open-air feeling, this blend of Grenache and Syrah smells of red fruit and red roses over a deep mineral and earthy background, nuanced by spices, balsam and aromatic herbs.
This wine of the Costers del Sió is crisp and nuanced. Texture is solid but loose, with no tension or oak suffocation. Delightfully pure, juicy red fruit, a touch of liquorice and, again, flowers and mineral suggestions. Long, complex finish.
