Product Description
Details

Crafted by the Alta Alella winery, Parvus Syrah is a Spanish red wine made from certified organic Syrah vines grown in the DO Alella, Catalonia's tiniest Designation of Origin. The region is not far from Barcelona, and historically it supplied the city with wine.

The vines grow under a purely Mediterranean climate and are planted on terraces oriented to the southeast. Located at an altitude between 150 and 300 metres, the soils are composed of sand of granitic origin, locally known as sauló.

Carefully selected and destemmed, the whole vinification process was carried out in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation of  AA Parvus Syrah took 20 days to complete, during which the solid cap of grape skins was pumped down several times to maximize the extraction of colour and aromatic compounds.

Finally, Parvus Syrah 2017 was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for a period of 12 months.

Appearance

The Spanish red wine Parvus Syrah has a clean, bright, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This interesting organic red wine from the Alta Alella winery is clean and precise, with typical Syrah notes of cocoa and black pepper, alongside hints of vanilla, toast, aromatic herbs, spices and, finally, wonderful remembrances of blue flowers.

Palate

Medium-bodied and fresh, this red wine from Alta Alella also has a meaty, bolder side. Juicy black fruit, ripe tannins -still a bit untamed- and a tense acidity. Long finish that leaves remembrances of menthol, liquor-infused fruit and toasted bread.

Our personal opinion

For those of you who love Syrah, but also for those who simply love good wine, Parvus Syrah 2017 is an excellent choice. A truly nice organic red wine from Alella.

Very good organic Syrah. Crisp, sort of "natural", very expressive. Being almost 4 years, now is the perfect time to drink it.
