Tasting Notes 

Colour

Garnet red with a brighter ruby rim. 

Nose

Intense fruity flavour with a hint of spice on the nose.

Palate

An added dimension is the subtle use of oak which combines well with the soft ripe tannin.

Vineyard

Hacienda Zorita Natural Reserve Syrah is made from selected grapes grown on a 72 ha. Vineyard in the Natural Park of Arribes del Duero, the Unamuno Vineyard. Here, we work with the latest viticulture techniques including the Smart-Dyson vine training method, allowing for better and more complete ripening of the grapes. We grow international varieties (Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) as well as Spain's indigenous Tempranillo.

Production Method

When optimum ripeness is reached, the grapes are harvested. After remaining at controlled temperature and humidity, we proceed by blending the wines. To maintain optimal quality, only a minimum amount of filtration takes place prior to bottling. Aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.
