Flor de Malvajio Flor 2017

This is the third wine I’ve tried from the Bodegas Malvajio stable. A red wine made from 90% Syrah and 10% Garnacha. As with the other two, I loved it, which is unusual because the Syrah grape variety usually produces wines that are too spicy for me. Not this time.

Flor de Malvajio has a dark inky purple colour with a medium to light scent that comes across slightly mineral but with a promise of plenty of fruit.

It totally delivers on the fruit. Lovely dark berries and dark fruit flavour almost perfumed. It lives up to its name: flor. It is relatively light on tannins and acidity. Sufficient to give it some texture, but low enough not to overwhelm my tannin sensitive palate. There is an earthy mineral hint to this wine and a light to medium finish. It is a very smooth drink.

A fantastic young fruity red.
