New vintage Bock Extreme Syrah released
2021 – hot and dry year resulting outstanding quality
The 2020 vintage of this wine collected gold medal Berliner Wine Trophy and great gold medal at Citadelles du Vin. Will 2021 follow suit? According to the description of the weather in 2021 by the winery, most of the parameters were similar to that of vintage 2020. So yes, we look forward to at least the same success with this stunning wine. Valér Bock, the founder József Bock’s son has created something extremely good again.
Balanced, layered, endless
The Syrah for this wine came from Bocor vineyard with limestone, loess, loam soil. Fermentation took place in a vat and the wine matured in barrique fo 18 months. And what is the wine like? “Crystal clear, deep purple colour. The “legs” on the inside of the glass move slowly, evenly anticipating that our wine is not an everyday wine here. The nose is youthful, developing, as we pour into the glass it changes every minute. More and more layers are revealed, it begins with a cavalcade of red and black berry fruits and goes on with exciting, luscious barrel spices, and it does not stop. The scale of aromas is immensely wide from santal through blood orange and pepper to tobacco leaf. The palate justifies the promise of the nose: dry, full mouthfeel, firm, balanced acidity, really soft tannin structure. Medium plus body and endless aftertaste. It is worth decanting one or one and a half hours before drinking. Recommended serving temperature: 16–18 C. Ideal pairing with venison stew or steak garnished with spicy steak potato or grilled vegetables and green pepper sauce.”
