Reserva Syrah


Winemaker’s Notes

In the Maule Valley, terroirs with a high percentage of clay determine the mineral character of our wines. The cold evening breezes from the Andes mountains caress our vineyards, causing extreme fluctuations in temperature. The resulting wines are intense in color, full of fresh fruit, highly concentrated and with mature tannins, delivering a well-balanced palate. The grapes, of our own production, were carefully selected and hand-harvested. Cold macerations took place over ten days.This was followed by fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 27°C. 40% of this wine was aged for six months in French and American oak barrels. Cellaring Recommendations: Three to four years

This is a juicy, well-structured wine with soft tannins and notes of cherries and strawberries, as well as hints of vanilla from the ageing process.The finish is fresh and persistent. Serving Suggestion This wine combines well with red meta, duck, mature cheese and red fruit tart.
