Product Description
Details

Produced by bodega Rendé Masdéu, Rendé Masdéu Arnau is an interesting Spanish red wine coming from an area of DO Conca de Barberà, southern Catalonia, which shares some characteristics with the neighbouring Priorat. 

This varietal organic red wine is sourced from Syrah vines, 25 years old on average, located near the Protected Natural Space of Muntanyes de Prades and grown in llicorella (slate) soils which impart a distinctively mineral vibe to the wine.

Hand-picked in 15 kg boxes and fully destemmed, 85% of the grapes were fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, and the other 15% was macerated and fermented in oak barrels.

After that, the red wine Rendé Masdéu Arnau Syrah 2020 was aged for 12 monts in French and American oak barrels.

Finally, this Crianza red wine was kept in the cellar for some months before being commercially released.

Decant this red wine from Conca de Barberà 30 minutes before drinking.

Pair with casseroles, roast recipes and game dishes.

Appearance

The red wine Rendé Masdéu Arnau Syrah is deep ruby with a reddish hue on the rim.

Nose

This varietal Syrah has a deeply mineral and smokey quality, with aromas of liqueur de cassis, blueberry pie and bitter cocoa, nuanced by a dash of clove and cinnamon and a dash of flowers and herbs.

Palate

This wine of bodega Rendé Masdéu is lush and textured, with a vertical acidity, lots of energy, grainy tannins and delicious ripe black fruit, underscored by some smokey and floral notes. Long mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

The flavourful Rendé Masdéu Arnau Syrah 2020 is an uncommonly mineral Syrah.

Good Syrah, amazingly priced
Value
Nice super ripe fruit with killer acidity and some slate-shale notes. The price is incredible, considering the rising cost of living.
