Bright cherry-red with touches of purple. Sweet cherry, cedar nose. Tart cherries (griottes) on the palate with fine, silky tannins which soften as the wine opens in the glass. Seriously tasty and superb with Manchego. Tart, soft finish with a great, long mouthfeel of cherries and damsons.
AboutWith only 25 years under their belts, the current owners of this beautiful winery in La Mancha, Quinta de Aves, have wasted no time in improving the vines, recovering ancient vineyards and installing irrigation systems. Hand-in-hand with this they have modernised and upgraded wine production in a brand new building which sits slightly elevated overlooking the countryside. With more than a passing respect for the environment, the winery is built partially underground, with the ageing and bottling rooms fully underground. As well as the obvious visual impact, this minimises the need for heating and cooling over the year.
A unique and modern style of Syrah which would work with any food with a degree of salt, including cheeses, pates, casseroles, salt cod and even anchovies. Serve at room temperature.
