Pascual Toso Alta Syrah 2018


The 2018 Pascual Toso Alta Syrah has a deep, bright red color, with violet hints. It is characterized by spicy aromas, and plenty of vanilla and cocoa in the nose. There are sweet tannins with a strong presence of spices, on the palate. It is a very elegant and complex wine.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The soil is frank and stony. Hand-harvest takes place only after having achieved the full maturation, when the grapes are at optimal ripeness. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures with selected yeast, and then the wine is aged in new American oak barrels for fourteen months. To maximize the grapes' expression, the wine is softly filered before bottling. Once it is bottled, it remains in temperature-controlled conditions for another six months prior to release. 

Serving Hints
Suggested serving temperature between 59 (15 C)to 62.6 F° (17 C). This is a wine that is a great accompaniment to red meats, as well as spicy pasta dishes and mature cheeses.
