Garnacha Garnacha Syrah
Artisanal Sustainable

Description

Red Blend of Garnacha (65%) and Syrah (35%) with brief stay in American oak to get a great round finish. Its complexity and quality denote a pampered artisanal elaboration. You may feel abundant salivation and a great balanced acidity on the palate.

You will enjoy… the intense feeling of placidness it creates in the mouth

Out of curiosity… Prados Fusión is made by direct blending of Garnacha and Syrah grapes in traditional open vats (not afterwards like the majority of wineries do). That’s the reason why those Syrah grapes chosen for blending are kept for late ripening so both varieties arrive together to the winery.

Did you know that…? The Garnacha-Syrah tandem is one of the modern winemaker’s favorites. Syrah grape adds stability and colour structure to Garnacha-based wines.

Winemarker notes
Winemaker notes:
Dark ruby color. Extrovert nose of well ripe black fruit from the Syrah grape and Mediterranean scrublands like thyme, rosemary and even lavender, representative of Garnacha from Campo de Borja. On the palate, it is pleasantly jammy but fresh thanks to its herbal hues, also present in the aftertaste. Definitely, it is a social wine. It is open, complex but easy-drinking thanks to its fresh character, soft tannins and silky long finish. No doubt, you will go for another sip!
Winemaking/Vinification
Winemaking / Vinification:
• Manual harvest and use of small boxes of less than 19 kg.
