Syrah Selección 2014 14.5%, Bodegas Ibargüen

Deep blacky red with a maturing but healthy rim with a hint of orange.
Quite full and rich with good ripeness, traces of oak and some maturity yet very fresh; a wine in perfect shape for drinking. There are some concentrated, well ripened red and black fruits like mulberry and bramble as well as notes of spice with traces of tar and smoke as well; classic Syrah.
Full bodied and characterful, ripe and supple. There is lots of ripe fruit balanced nicely with well- integrated ripe tannins and perfect acidity. It has an attractive spiciness and that warm feel of a wine from southern climes as well as an attractive texture and good length. Time for a steak.
Bodegas Ibargüen can be found in beautiful countryside near Villamartin on the fringes of the Natural park of Grazalema. It is a small, quality-driven family business based at their Finca Las Posadas whose vineyards are certified organic. Yields are low and harvesting is manual, with artisan production methods but using modern equipment. This Syrah is made from selected bunches and fermented in stainless steel before being aged in French and American oak barrels for six months. It spends some time in bottle before sale.
8.85 euros, Licores Corredera
