Quinta De Aves Noctua Syrah 2014 75cl

SKU: 42556
A delicious cherry, chocolaty Syrah, Noctua is a modern, almost New World style of red wine which works really with hearty food and is just as comfortable on its own. A testament to what can be achieved outside France with this big, spicy grape variety.

  • Tasting Notes

    Bright cherry-red with touches of purple. Sweet cherry, cedar nose. Tart cherries (griottes) on the palate with fine, silky tannins which soften as the wine opens in the glass. Seriously tasty and superb with Manchego. Tart, soft finish with a great, long mouthfeel of cherries and damsons.


    With only 25 years under their belts, the current owners of this beautiful winery in La Mancha, Quinta de Aves, have wasted no time in improving the vines, recovering ancient vineyards and installing irrigation systems. Hand-in-hand with this they have modernised and upgraded wine production in a brand new building which sits slightly elevated overlooking the countryside. With more than a passing respect for the environment, the winery is built partially underground, with the ageing and bottling rooms fully underground. As well as the obvious visual impact, this minimises the need for heating and cooling over the year.

    The Syrah is harvested in the middle of September at night when the grapes are firmest and less prone to bruising. Hand-sorted and destemmed, selected yeasts are added for the fermentation which is temperature controlled in stainless steel tanks at 25 degrees. Syrah is actually a native grape variety of Iran, though is better known as the principal grape used for full-bodied, spicy Rhone wines such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Hermitage, Saint Joseph, etc. and for some of the big Shiraz wines from the Barossa Valley in Australia. In our view, Noctua Syrah sits comfortably between these two styles of wines.

    Ideal with...

    A unique and modern style of Syrah which would work with any food with a degree of salt, including cheeses, pates, casseroles, salt cod and even anchovies. Serve at room temperature.
