Product Description
Details

Born in the harsh region of the Toledo mountains, Vallegarcía Syrah Magnum belongs to the tiny Designation of Origin Pago Vallegarcía.

This single varietal Syrah red is made from south-oriented, low-yielding vines grown in extremely poor soils.

First, the Syrah grapes of this Spanish red wine were carefully selected and brought to the cellar in little boxes.

Then they were macerated for a period of 72 hours, after which they were fermented for 21 days at a low temperature.

After that, this estate wine of the Pago de Vallegarcía winery was aged in new French oak barrels for a period of 12 months.

Finally, Vallegarcía Syrah 2017 Magnum was aged for a minimum of 12 months in the bottle prior to its release.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.
