Valcanto Syrah has long been a favourite with our Spanish red buyers and we're very excited to have the 2018 vintage finally arrive. It's another outstanding wine imported into New Zealand by leading Spanish wine trader Steve Bennett MW, who calls Bodegas Piqueras "One of the best value producers I’ve discovered in my 28 years in the industry."  

Sound like something very special is going on here? There definitely is. This 2018 wine from Almansa is a dark, opulent beauty with layers of mouthfilling, silken dark fruits and spicy oak complexity. Kiwi Syrah delivering this sort of concentration and depth would be $35+and after one taste you will be agreeing with that assessment 100%.  Buy with our highest recommendation. Valcanto rocks. 

Family owned, this is the fourth generation of the Piqueras family to have overseen the property since it was established in 1915 in Almansa, south-east Spain, some 60km from Alicante and the Mediterranean Sea, characterized by its low rainfall and poor, low-fertility limestone soils which are organically farmed. From a single estate 700-800 metres altitude and sourced from hand-harvested, 25-30 year-old, organically-farmed vines grown at 700-800m above sea level in calcareous, stony soils. Valcanto is a pure, intense, elegant expression of Syrah with delicious, natural acidity and is aged in fine-grained 300l American oak hogsheads for 6 months to give a gentle, creamy texture.

Tasting Notes

The winery writes "Full-bodied red wine with rich aromas of red cherries, plums and blackberries and spicy notes of black pepper. Remarkable red fruit presence on the mid-palate, soft tannins and medium-long finish. Balanced, excellent acidity, smooth and elegant in the mouth with a subtle hint of toastiness. Great ageing potential."

Sam Kim writes "Beautifully ripe and fragrant, showing dark plum, sweet cherry, toasted spice, floral and almond characters on the nose. The palate delivers lovely supple mouthfeel and succulent fruit intensity, combined with silky texture and fine tannins, making it approachable and flavoursome."
