|Wine maker notes
|The grapes come from the Central Valley of Chile, well known for the great quality and concentration of its wines. The broad day-night temperature differentials, as well as the long, dry and sunny summers, allow the fruit to ripe slowly and express all its varietal character of Syrah of red fruit, plums and blueberries. After fermentation the wine remained for 8 months on its lees in inert stainless steel tanks in order to preserve its fruitiness and to deliver pleasant and delicate notes. This wine has an intense red color with violets hues. On the nose, the wine shows aromas of black fruits and some spicy notes like pepper and cloves. On the palate the wine is soft and well balanced with a long finish.
Fermentation is in stainless steel for 7 days and aged in stainless steel for a few month.
Vineyard Characteristics Alluvial soils with loam and clay. The climate experiences big day and night temperature differences with long sunny summers and Mediterranean temperatures.
|Veal parmigiana, pasta with meatballs, BBQ, pizza, chicken wings.
