Miquel Jané Syrah Organic (3 x 750ml)

The Syrah grapes come from 25-years-old vines, located on the Foix Natural Park in Castellet i la Gornal. Coming from ecological agriculture, and with a conscientious work of the soil, we get little production of grapes, which makes the concentration of aromas and color exceptional, and a very important thing, perhaps the most, that we get the skins reaches its optimum point of maturation.

Grape harvested by machine early in the morning, and transported immediately to the cellar. Then we skid it and put it with the skins in the fermentation tanks. Remounted daily, usually 2, to extract most ofthe color and the aromas of the skins, at a controlled temperature of about 23 degrees.

To taste, we decide when we to decant it, usually between 10 and 15 days of contact with the skins. Once we decide that we have to separate the juice from the skins, we lightly press the skins. When the alcoholic fermentation is over, the malolactic fermentation begins.

After the malolactic fermentation, we put it to age in stainless tank on fine lees for 4or 5 months, making several “batonnage”, looking for a wine with more structure and complexity.

MIQUEL JANÉ WINES
The beginnings of the history of the Miquel Jané Winery, go back to the end of the 19th century, date that is the beginning of the winery’s activity. In those days, they produced wine in bulk and it was distributed mainly in Cuba, thanks to the fact that the family owned a company of frigates that crossed the ocean. Throughout family generations, wine estates have been acquired, including the Cal Costas estate and the La Baltana Vella estate, from which all Miquel Jané wines are currently made.
In 2002, Josep Miquel Jané transformed the bulk wine business into the sale of bottled wine under his own brand: MIQUEL JANÉ. Currently the fourth generation of the family continues to lead the business, working a total of 57ha where they harvest grapes of the highest quality. In addition, care for the environment has made the way of making wine change so that today the farm is totally organic.
