Bodegas Lavia Monastrell Syrah 2017

SKU: 3103001090180593Categories: ,


Plum color, violet rim and medium depth. Intense, fresh nose with hints of forest fruits such as blackberries and blueberries over spicy notes of clove and cinnamon. A wine with a pleasant passage, good volume and lots of fruit, silky and with elegant tannins. Fresh and harmonious finish.100% organically farmed grapes of 80% Monastrell dry farmed, vineyards over 31-50 years old and 20% Syrah 19 years old vines on trellises. The eponymous 2017 Lavia has more Monastrell than in previous vintages, and there’s only 20% Syrah in the bottled blend. 2017 was an early and low-yielding year. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in 10,000-liter oak vats and used 500-liter oak barrels for one year. It’s drinkable and Mediterranean, juicy and with fine tannin, serious enough within the more approachable and drinkable profile of the wine. Even in a warm vintage, the altitude of the zone gives the wine a touch of freshness, a characteristic of Bullas. 40,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2019.
