Description

Chile is a country of two halves, vineyards planted near the ocean of which there are many as Chile has a very long coastline, are cool climate regions due to the cold onshore breezes compared with the more southern inland, hot regions. There is the opportunity for such diversity due to the extreme climatic differences. Lack of water is becoming more of an issue and hence lots of work is being done on dry-farming (no irrigation). This is a country with great potential and one to keep an eye on as it offers great value for money wines. This Syrah is from Colchuagua Valley which is an southern, inland region.

Smells

a lovely combination of ripe and herbal/spicy notes at the same time. Chile often shows a lot of similarities to NZ and its highlighted in this bouquet by the ripe red fruit aromas with the spicy, almost white pepper hints typical of Syrah's from Hawkes Bay. These aromas are combined with milk chocolate cedar and green coffee beans.

Tastes

a juicy ripe expression of Syrah with mouthcoating tannins and refreshing acidity, this combined with the generous fruit on the palate makes for a delicious everyday drinking Syrah. Drink now til 2025 with roasted red meats.
