Product Description
Details

The remarkable Thalarn is a varietal Syrah crafted by the prestigious Raül Bobet. The former chief technical director at Bodegas Torres, Mr. Bobet, one of the world's most accomplished oenologists, currently divides his time between Castell d'Encús, his personal project, and the Ferrer Bobet winery in Priorat.

Located at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level, on the Catalan side of the Pyrenees, the 3-hectare estate is farmed according to the principles of organic and byodinamic farming.

Vinification of this Spanish red wine followed a complex and meticulous process. One part of the wine was macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks, another part in oak vats, and the rest in open-air stone vats dating from the 12th century, hewn by the Hospitaller monks who at that time inhabited the area.

Subsequently, the wine was blended and transferred into 70% new French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months. Thalarn 2017 from DO Costers del Segre was not filtered, clarified or stabilized prior to bottling.

We suggest that you decant this Crianza red wine some time before you drink it.

Limited production.

Appearance

The red wine Thalarn is medium ruby with a violet rim.

Nose

This varietal Syrah suggests aromas of blackberries and damson, with notes of black olives, flowers and charcoal. There is a tinge of aromatic herbs, combined with some mineral and earthy undertones.

Palate

Crafted with razor-sharp precision, this wine from Castell d'Encús is fresh, spacious and energetic. Remarkably pure and transparent, with a taut acidity and an enlivening, mineral finish with goes on for a long time.

Our personal opinion

Produced by one of Spain's most intellectually sophisticated wineries, Thalarn 2017 is an impressive high-altitude Syrah.

Impressive wine. Super deep and pure Syrah not entirely unlike those from the Valais, Switzerland.
