Details

Crafted by the Alta Alella winery, Parvus Syrah is a Spanish red wine made from certified organic Syrah grapes grown in 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 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 2016 was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for a period of 12 months.

Drink this organic red wine from the DO Alella until 2023.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

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

Nose

This organic Syrah by the Alta Alella winery is clean and precise, with typical Syrah notes of cocoa, coffee, red peppers, along with hints of vanilla, toast, aromatic herbs, spices and, finally, wonderful remembrances of blue flowers.

Palate

This red wine from Alella is medium-bodied and fresh, but it 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 2016 is your choice.

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