Characteristics of Alceño Syrah Premium
The new vintage Alceño Syrah Premium is a red wine from D.O. Jumilla made by Bodegas Alceño, a winery founded in 1870 and, currently run by the fourth generation in the family.
The climate of this area is typically continental but with influences of the Mediterranean, characterised by the sun and little rain. The winters are very cold and the summers are very warm; they have registered a great change in temperature between the seasons.
This wine is coupage of Syrah (85%) and Monastrell (15%) produced in their own vineyards.
As for the production, after a cold pellicular maceration at 10ºC for 4 days, the wine undergoes a fermentation with local yeast at 25ºC. The maceration is for 6 days with a daily stirring. Afterwards, the wine is subject to a microoxygenation in order to fix the tannins before the malolactic fermentation begins.
Finally, Alceño Syrah Premium is racked and rests for 5 months in French and American oak barrels, where it rests for 6 months before being bottled.
