90% Syrah, 10% Tempranillo grown in the Casablanca Valley area of Las Dichas. After a manual selection of bunches, the grapes were destemmed and subject to a cold maceration of 5 days. Fermentation took place in small lots and in terracotta amphorae with very soft manual punch-downs, 3 times per day. 5% of the grapes were fermented with whole clusters. The wine was kept for 14 months: Syrah in untoasted foudre and Tempranillo in amphorae.
Intense and bright red color. A wine with layers of aromas, among them, red fruits, graphite, ash, olives, flowers and charcuterie. Elegant, fruity and fresh on palate, with a delicious and inviting acidity.
Try with red meat, lamb meat, game birds and mature cheeses.
Third Party Reviews
Another member of TerraNoble’s newest line, this wine is 90% syrah and 10% tempranillo, both from 8-year-old vines planted in the Las Dichas zone, one of the coolest in Casablanca and just 14 kilometers from the sea. There’s red fruit all over the place, rich acidity, and floral and herb notes in a wine that’s very easy to drink. Score 93, Descochados, Sept 2020
