Great exponent of this variety, a classic example of a rich yet elegant coastal Syrah, elected several times as the Best Syrah from Chile. Is an elegant wine with great balance between tannins and acidity. Hand harvested in early May, the grapes are subjected to a double selection before being gravity fed to open – top tanks. After fermentation the wine is drained by gravity to french oak barrels where it is aged for 18 months. Bottled without filtration this wine was matured in bottle for 3 months prior to release.
Lifted notes of blackcurrant, violet and lavender dominate with just a hint of tar. In the mouth flavors of dark chocolate, truffle and licorice combine with a vibrant acidity and svelte tannins,leading to a long, juicy finish.
