Red Wine Les Sorts Sycar 2020
Availability: In stock
Year after year, Celler Masroig from DO Montsant scores a hit with the wonderful Les Sorts Sycar.
The 2020 vintage of this delightful Spanish red wine is made from a blend of Carignan, coming from old vines, and Syrah, coming from young vines.
After a meticulous vinification process in stainless steel tanks, Les Sorts Sycar 2020 black label was aged for 13 months in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels.
Before being bottled, this red wine from Montsant was gently filtered, but not clarified.
Aerate this Crianza red wine 1 hour before drinking.
The wine Les Sorts Sycar is deep ruby with garnet tinges and a purple rim.
As expected, this blend of Carignan and Syrah results in a complex, intense aromatic expression. Smokey notes, nutty aromas and some ripe, jammy black fruit. In the background there are hints of aromatic herbs and a sharp, mineral undertone.
Smooth and fleshy, this red wine of Celler Masroig is medium to full-bodied, with a steely acidity, ripe tannins and a long finish with spicy oak notes and a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.
