Microbio Wines Sietejuntos Syrah 2018
Ismael Gozalo is famous for his work with the Verdejo grape, native to his village of Nieva, in the province of Segovia in Castilla y León. He and Javier Zaccagnini started Ossian in 2004, building it into one of the finest white wine producers in Spain, before he left to focus on Microbio. Ismael's commitment to producing genuine and exciting wines eschews labels like DO, or even organic or natural, and instead he focusses simply on the land, the vines, and the wine in the bottle. Nothing added, and nothing taken away.
Verdejo forms the core of the MicroBio wines, however Ismael also makes red and rosé wines, from Tempranillo, Merlot, Syrah, and Rufete, as well as fresh Pet Nats.
The 2018 Sietejuntos Syrah is made from 100% Syrah grapes, hand-harvested from a single 0.8Ha plot in Nieva, planted in 1999. The grafting wood comes from Crozes-Hermitage, in France’s Rhône Valley. Whole bunches, with stems, were harvested, for the most part, from the whole vintage.
Aeration and gentle pumpovers were used during the first half of the alcoholic fermentation (with native yeasts) to extract the floral and fruit notes. Hands and feet were used for second half of the fermentation. After a gentle pressing, the wine moved to Burgundian barrels - previously used for white wine - to round out the tannins and set the colour. No sulphites added. About 2 barrels produced each year.
Bottled unfined and unfiltered, at ~13.5% alc./vol..
Our Tasting Note: Dark colour. Classic cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of Northern Rhône wines, with notes of violets and smoked bacon. Complex aromas and flavours of blackcurrant, blackberry, and black cherry with notes of mint, dark chocolate, white pepper, and vanilla spice. Juicy with round tannins, and an elegant finish.
Pairing: Pair with grilled and roasted meats (lamb). Serve between 15º- 17ºC
