Carmenere Syrah 2014
WINE OVERVIEW

An unusual blend from the warmer central vineyards in the high elevation Elqui Valley.

Tasting Notes

Made in a style similar to old world Italian, this is a very fruit driven wine that is juicy (not jammy). Intense ripe blackberry and plum fruits with a touch of vanilla and spice.

Food Pairing

Pair with grilled meats and Mediterranean dishes.

Tech Details

Made from grapes harvested from the La Compañia vineyards near the mid-valley village of Vicuña. Each varietal is fermented in separate stainless steel tanks with four days of cold maceration to achieve the best fruit extraction. Instead of the traditional pumping over method, they use punchdowns to preserve the best tannins, color extraction and expression of terroir possible. The Syrah is partially aged in French oak barrels and the Carmenere is also partially aged in American oak for five months.
