Zarihs has ripe aromas of black fruits on the nose, mixed with blackcurrant pastilles and a hint of coffee and vanilla. On the palate it is flavours of wild blackberries, toasty oak and black peppery notes. This is all balanced by a fresh acidity and a touch of dark chocolate.
Syrah was planted over 16 years ago in the foothills of the Moncayo, 600-700m above sea level. The vines take full advantage of their position - limestone soil, sun and the Cierzo wind which blows from the north-west to freshen the grapes. The grapes are macerated for 4-5 days, and then fermentation takes place for 15-20 days in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. 60% remains in stainless steel, whilst the other 40% matures in new American oak for 12 months.
Enjoy this red with roasted and grilled lamb or beef, would also work with fatty pork belly and duck.
