Castelo de Medina ‘Syté’ 2014

25.00

Description

A big, powerful red that pulls no punches with its upfront aromas, awesome density and long, concentrated flavours of mulberry, menthol and melted liquorice.

Syté (pronounced see-tay) is a stunning blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Tempranillo (Spain’s most-planted grape) that’s aged for 14 months in new French and American oak barrels. A smouldering temptress of vinous awesomeness!

Decant for two hours and savour with milk-fed lamb or roasted beef rib and listen out for angels singing

Producer: Castelo de Medina

Castelo de Medina is a top Rueda winery, with its own venerable vineyards and cutting-edge technology founded by three wine lovers in 1996 in a small Valladolid town called Villaverde de Medina in Castilla y León. It has benefited from a generous financial investment from part owner Freixenet which has modernised production methods whilst still keeping the historical winemaking traditions of the region. Carmen Blanco and Sara Román are the winemakers crafting expressive sometimes complex wines from Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viura, of which 180 hectares are dedicated from vines planted in the 1970's.

    "I first had this in a restaurant in Villaverde de Medina, the small town the winery's located in, with milk-fed lamb, and I swear to God I heard angels sing!"
