Marqués de Griñón Syrah Dominio de Valdepusa 2004
With a blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Graciano, this wine is named after the Spanish word for limestone. The ideal combination of a mineral-rich topsoil one to three feet deep over a pure limestone topsoil such as found at the estate of Dominio de Valdepusa originates some of the world's best terroirs and wines.
The Marqués de Griñon estate, in the family since 1292, was the first in Spain to be granted its own D.O. or Denominación de Origen – Spain’s highest vineyard rating. The non-traditional estate wines are from international varietals, using cutting-edge viticulture and winemaking techniques – the results have received international acclaim.
External Reviews for Marqués de Griñón Syrah Dominio de Valdepusa
Marques de Grinon put Syrah on the map in Spain, and this exhibits a deep purple color, enticingly fruity and powerful with lush raspberries and black cherries, but equally well balanced.
Wine Tasting NotesDeep purple color with glistening cherry hues. Enticingly fruity and powerful aromas reminiscent of lush raspberries and ripe black cherries, delicately balanced by a subtle minerality and notes of wild peppermint. It is a beautifully full-bodied and fresh wine that reveals a silky structure leading to a textured and long lasting finish. 65% Syrah, 35% Graciano.
