Shiraz Syrah


Year: 2012
Grape Mix: Syrah
Country: Chile
Region: Elqui Valley
Our price:
"Inspiring wine: wonderfully intense, wonderfully scented and ripe, but wonderfully cool in style. You simply can't get flavours as lovely as this in hot conditions. Chile is rapidly developing new vineyard areas and has an expanding and impressive roll-call of grape varities at which she excels. Syrah is one of them. This is like a top northern Rhone syrah from a very good year. It smells of fresh blackberries and summer evening bonfire smoke and then it billows out with a sumptuous texture - blackberries and logan berries, syrupy soft, but roughened by wood smoke and the lightest smack of tannin." ......
