Pago de Cirsus Vendimia Seleccionada 2015

Navarra, Spain

Buy Now:

The star of the show from this single estate, high on the Navarra plains, this is a "harvest selection" blend of Tempranillo, Merlot and Syrah (roughly a third of each), aged in a mix of French and American oak barrels for a year. Dark cherry in colour, this is iron fist in velvet glove stuff, rich and delightfully complex - a mix of red berries and dark plum underscored by balsamic and cocoa - showcased in a luxuriously silky texture with masterfully interwoven tannins.
Pair up with pasta Bolognese, roasts, game or a cheese board, ideally including some cured Manchego.
Pago de Cirsus is an elevated single estate outside the village of Ablitas in Navarra, with 135 hectares of southerly vineyards planted with Merlot, Tempranillo, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and small grain Muscat. The average yield per hectare is intentionally reduced to around 4 metric tonnes, much lower than what is required by Navarra's control board, resulting in excellent quality grapes and elegant wines with good body and powerful structure. The distinctive and eccentric modern castle tower that fronts the winery and cellars can be seen from miles around, and the attached hotel and restaurant are worth a visit for the views alone.

Decanter magazine

"Damson, black cherry and floral notes with a supple palate that is bursting with primary fruit. Long and very spicy."
