Tasting Note

The remarkably malleable Syrah grape is capable of doing very interesting things in Spain; this is a full, fruity wine that expresses plums, blueberries and dark cherries. Drink soon or over the next few years.

Wine Description

Our 2011 Syrah is an intense, clear and brilliant ruby ​​red with reflections of iridescent violet and light purple. The wine expresses red fruits and fresh fruit with subtle hints of vanilla, with good intensity, good assembly on the nose, and it is fresh on the palate, medium bodied and smooth, balanced, with sweet tannin and well-integrated fruit. A long and persistent aftertaste completes the wine.

About the Winery

The Argum winery is located on the Route of Don Quixote and a few minutes from Villarrobledo. With the same philosophy used in the care of our vineyards, we harvest the grapes that Nature provides in a given year, and using the latest technology and the utmost care, we transform this precious fruit in our wines, whose main characteristics should be expressed throughout the process. In our aging cellars, outside the fast pace at which we move, our wines mature, enriched with each of the scents that they carry from the best wood and also with the peace and quiet they need.
