Deep purple in colour. On the nose lifted notes of blueberry, violet and rosmary dominate with just a hint of liquorice. In the mouth flavours of boysenberry, leather and tar combine with a hint of dark chocolate, all backed-up by a vibrant acidity and svelte tannins leading to a long, juicy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Syrah Pequeñas Producciones aims at producing a cold climate Syrah from 12-year-old vines planted on a slope close to the sea in Casablanca. The hand-harvested grapes were sorted twice and put in a stainless steel vat at very low temperature for eight days to delay the start of the fermentation, after which they were inoculated with yeasts. It fermented for some six days at a maximum of 32 Celsius. After pressing, the wine was put into French oak barrels, 71% of them new, where it matured for 11 months. The nose is very spicy (black peppercorns, cloves) with more herbal aromas despite being a slightly riper, warmer vintage; the olives are perhaps green and not only black, and something creamy too. There are balsamic aromas and notes of cured meat and smoke, quite powerful and showy. The palate is medium to full-bodied with good acidity and great freshness. An aromatic, showy, earthy cool climate Syrah. It seems to have less oak than previous years. 15,000 bottles produced.
