The single varietal red wine Viñas del Vero Colección Syrah is produced in Somontano.
This Spanish red wine is made from Syrah grapes coming from a single estate, named Pago Las Coronas. Composed of clayey and rocky soils with very low levels of organic matter, the place benefits from a particular microclimate that helps the grapes ripen slowly and steadily.
Produced by Viñas del Vero, the 2015 was vintage was a tough one, with extreme heat in July and intense showers outside the rainy season.
The grapes harvested by hand at the beginning of September and, once in the cellar, they were cooled. Then this red wine from Somontano was fermented with the skins, transferred into French oak barrels and aged for 10 months after the completion of malolactic fermentation.
Before its bottling in October 2017, Viñas del Vero Colección Syrah 2015 was clarified and filtered. Finally, it was aged for some months in the cellar before its release.
Drink this Syrah from Somontano until 2022.
