The 2009 La Vina de Corteo Syrah comes from a single 1.8-hectare vineyard in the Aragona Valley and is raised in new French oak for 30 months. Comparing the bouquet side-by-side against the El Nido, I have to say that the wood is the dominant feature as one would expect, which is a pity as there is some decent, pure fruit underneath this almost impenetrable carapace. The palate is powerful, sweet, and unashamedly modern. Served blind, you would find it difficult to place in Jumilla or indeed anywhere else. That said, it does have a seam of acidity that just about maintains balance, although there is some heat at the back of the throat on the finish. Readers should note that I tasted this wine upon opening and after 12 and 24 hours, just in case the wine came together, but it did not. If I were to splash the cash, then I would head for the El Nido proprietary wine. Neil Martin, The Wine Advocate
