Pasarisa La Rioja Syrah 2014 75cl 13.5% ABV
In the iron-rich soils of La Rioja, a province famous for its early 19th century federalist warlord Facundo Quiroga and whose local cuisine features a lot of lamb, Laura Catena of Catena Zapata has created a "meaty" Syrah. Part of the new range of Pasarisa wines, showcasing some of the exciting rural regions in Argentina, this is a long and persistent wine suitable for bottle ageing.
On the nose, notes of red fruit combined with spice. The palate has hints of liquorice, vanilla and coconut.
