Product Description
Details

Surprising as it may seem, international grape varieties such as Syrah can feel quite at home in an overtly southern climate. This Spanish red wine is a clear evidence of that fact.

Produced by the Huerta de Albalá winery, Taberner is a single varietal red wine from Cádiz.

The grapes were selected at the vineyard, brought to the cellar in little boxes and selected again. After that, the "surviving" grapes were destemmed and vinified in stainless steel tanks.

Once the process was completed, Taberner 2015 was transferred into French oak barrels. There the wine completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for over a period of 18 months.

Finally, this Syrah from Cádiz was gently clarified with egg whites prior to its bottling.

We suggest that you decant it 1 hour before you drink it to let it express its remarkable complexity.

Additional Information
Appearance

Bright and clean, Taberner has an intense, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a purplish rim.

Nose

This red wine from Huerta de Albalá smells primarily of black fruit, nuanced by surprising notes of chocolate and tapenade. This red wine from Andalusia also carries aromas of balsam and eucalyptus, alongside some creamy, nicely integrated wooden notions and a salty remembrance.

Palate

Bold an elegant, this Syrah from Cádiz gently coats the palate with exuberant notes of wild berries, some creamy sensations, hints of balsam, menthol and underbrush, and a touch of spices and salt. Ripe tannins, good acidity and long, succulent finish. Great job!

Our personal opinion

Not only is Andalusia the land of Sherries, Manzanillas and Creams. Taberner 2015 proves that the region is also capable of producing substantial, top-notch red wines.

Syrah oddity
Value
Commanding wine. It defines a set of conditions and works perfectly within that frame. By this I mean that this Syrah, despite being entirely unlike those from the Rhône or Valais, is a highly-functioning oddity.

Definitely worth buying. Superbly crafted, alcohol lays on the background and goes unnoticed. This is all about smoothness, fruit, freshness and texture. Enjoyable till the last drop.
