Red Wine Loxarel Eos Syrah 2018
Availability: In stock
Produced by Loxarel Viticultors, Loxarel Eos Syrah is a Spanish red wine made from organic and biodynamic vineyards located in the highest area of Penedès, at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level.
A single varietal Syrah, the grapes were harvested at their optimal ripening state. Once in the cellar, the uncrushed grape bunches were put into stainless steel tanks and fermented following the carbonic maceration procedure in order to highlight the varietal character of the wine.
Once that process was completed, the grapes were gently pressed and Loxarel Eos Syrah 2017 was aged for 10 months in French oak barrels.
Pair this wine of the Loxarel winery, also known as Masia Can Mayol, with cheese and meat dishes.
The red wine Loxarel Eos Syrah has a bright, intense, clean, medium cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
Very lively and expressive, as is usually the case with the Loxarel wines, this varietal Syrah from Penedès shows prominent varietal notes of chocolate, cocoa and roasted coffee, along with dim notions of violets, ripe cherries, raspberries and cranberries. Finally, there is a touch of chinese ink and aromas of laurel and balsam.
Crisp, lively and fresh, this Crianza red wine has some ripe tannins, a medium body and a refreshingly wild character. The palate suggests some notes of black fruit, chocolate and spices. Medium, pleasant finish with an earthy twist.
|Our personal opinion||
