Syrah "Zarihs" Borsao 2017

€17,00

Čisti Syrah (Zarihs je "Shiraz" napisano unatrag) od vinove loze zasađene prije skoro 20 godina u podnožju Moncayo (u Aragonu, Španija) kako bi se iskoristile prednosti tla, sunca i jedinstvenosti Cierza (snažnan, hladan i suvi vjetar), koji osvježava grožđe od cvjetanja do vrhunske zrelosti. Vinova loza se nalazi na 600-700 metara nadmorske visine, u krečnjačkom tlu, što daje Syrahu ugodnu kiselost.

Neprozirne crveno-crne boje sa grimizno-ljubičastim obodom, vino pruža snažan dojam kupine sa notom dima drveta i slatke vanile. Kako se vino otvara, očigledne su i note tamne čokolade. Početni uticaj na nepce je vino veoma punog tela sa plišanom, mekom strukturom. Dominiraju ukusi tamnog bobičastog voća; divlje kupine i suve šljive, sa notama espresso kafe. Dobar spoj za govedinu, svinjetinu, tjesteninu, povrće na žaru i jela na bazi pirinča poput paele.

 

A pure Syrah (Zarihs is “Shiraz” spelled backwards) from vines planted almost 20 years ago in the foothills of the Moncayo (in Aragon, Spain) to take advantage of the soil, sun and the uniqueness of the Cierzo (a strong, cool and dry wind), which freshens the grapes from bloom to peak maturity. The vines are 600-700 meters above sea level, in limestone soil, giving the Syrah a pleasant acidity. 

An opaque red-black colour with a crimson-purple rim, the wine offers a powerful impression of blackberries with a hint of wood smoke and sweet vanilla. As the wine opens up, notes of dark chocolate are also evident.  The initial impact on the palate is of a very full bodied wine with a plush, soft structure. Flavours of dark berries dominate; wild blackberries and dried plums, with notes of espresso coffee.  A good pairing for beef, pork, pasta, grilled vegetables and rice based dishes like paella.
