2018 Syrah El Campeon, Bodegas Paniza

2018 Syrah El Campeon, Bodegas Paniza
ref. CARI180

Wine Variety: Syrah - or Shiraz - is a French dark-skinned red grape variety. Despite numerous legends about Syrah's origins, DNA profiling has now found that this grape is the offspring of two obscure southern French varieties: Mondeuse Blanche and Dureza. It is therefore now accepted as fact that Syrah's origins lie in the northern Rhône Valley. Whether this is the same grape that produced the wine so enjoyed by Pliny the Elder in the first century AD is unknown;  he was certainly drinking wine made from a dark-skinned grape from the northern Rhône at that time. The father of the Australian wine industry - Scotsman James Busby - took Syrah (he called it both Scyras and Ciras) to that country in the mid-19th century and it is now thought that Australia can boast the oldest Syrah vineyards in the world.

Wine Region: Cariñena is both a wine-producing region west of Barcelona and a grape variety named after it. This is Aragon: high altitude and exceedingly dry. Its recently rediscovered local grape variety, Vidadillo, has to be a potential future Daily Drinker!

Wine Producer: Bodegas Paniza, founded more than 60 years ago, is a co-operative named after the local village. Paniza is now made up of 300 growers working more than 3,000 hectares of vineyards.

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

Med-deep cherry red with a tinge of purple about it. It offers up, with swirling, a dry nose of red and black plum fruit and attendant spices. The palate is clean and quite snappy, its structure (fresh, quite mineral, grippy tannins and firm, juicy acidity) is held within the compact fruit, the whole driving forward energetically to the long finish. The alcohol adds a warmth to the end. Highly drinkable Spanish red.
