'...one of the purest expressions of Syrah in Spain. Bravo!'
-  Luis Gutiérrez

A spicey and inviting blend of Syrah and Bobal, crafted by one of our favourite Spanish winemakers Javier Revert. Javi is certainly one of Spain's great young talents, and he lends his skills wonderfully to the wines of Finca Sandoval. Effortlessly inviting on the nose, with dark and brooding notes of blackberry, plum and blueberry compote. Like eating blackberries off a blackberry bush!

'Manchuela, almost unknown and forgotten until recently, offers some outstanding limestone terroirs on a high plateau surrounded by mountain ranges ─ the birthplace of the Bobal grape.' - Finca Sandoval

The 2020 Salia has a slightly different blend, 60% Syrah, 25% Bobal, 10% Touriga Nacional and 5% Garnacha, with a little bit more ripeness (13.5% alcohol) and more acidity and freshness. It fermented with 40% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and had 15 days of maceration. It matured in 300-liter French oak barrels for 10 months. It comes through as more nuanced and complete, very clean, with the 2020 Mediterranean profile. The wine is more expressive of the varieties, especially the Syrah. This is juicy and chewy, with fine tannins and very good balance. This has to be the finest Salia to date.
