Bodegas Paniza Agostón Garnacha & Syrah 2013

agoston

A well balanced blend of Garnacha and Sryah with harmonising jammy fruit and chili flake spice, a fantastic pairing with hearty, rustic dishes.

Winery: Bodegas Paniza is located at the foot of the Sistema Ibérico in northeastern Spain. Paniza has a total of 4760 hectares of land, 2500 of which are vineyards, 76 hectares contain vines that are 50 to over 100 years old. The other half of the land is left undisturbed and encompasses a wide variety of microclimates, the vineyards move seamlessly between the mountainsides, wild flower fields and old almond groves.

Winemaking: Agostón [Spanish wild boar] takes its name from the wild boars that “sneak into our vineyards from the adjoining forest-covered slopes of the Ibérico mountain-range. Here, amongst our old vines growing on stony soils, they’re free to take the pick of the bunch”. The must was fermented in contact with the skins in stainless steel tanks for 10 days, malolactic fermentation occurred in French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: Red-violet in colour with aromas of cherry and funky earth. Bold and well structured, jammy flavours of black cherry and tart blackberry embraced herbaceous hints that evolve into a lengthy, dry finish of chili flake spice and rustic earth notes.
