Bodegas Los Frailes Bilogía Syrah Blend 2017
- Textured, savoury
The current owners of Los Frailes are the 13th generation of the Velázquez family to make wine there since they bought the place in 1771. In 2000, they were amongst the first wineries in Spain to become fully biodynamic.
Despite a very long history, they’re not afraid to innovate, even if innovation means hand-harvesting bush vines! This wine is a 50-50 blend of syrah and monastrell, grown at over 600 metres the limestone-rich soils of their respective single vineyards. The monastrell was concrete-matured before seeing a touch of oak, while the syrah went straight into oak for 12 months. Because of this, they’ve struck a charming balance between ripeness and savouriness. The blend gives a variety of red and black fruit to the palate, with abundant spice and an earthy undertone. It’s a thoughtful wine, and bloody delicious.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
