Our Reserve Syrah has a dark violet color. It is a sophisticated wine with notes of cherry liquor, spices and a soft touch of toasted oak. It is full-bodied and offers a well balanced acidity. Its ripe tannins, fresh fruitiness and oak join together to create a perfect finish. Enjoy with spicy foods, red meats and mature cheeses.
The grapes come from a special selection of 3 and 6 quarters of our finest vineyards in Villa Alegre, Maule Valley, which are specially managed and controlled to maintain a maximum performance of 6 tons per hectare (2.4 tons per acre) and high exposure of the fruit, producing a highly concentrated wine ideal for aging. Once in a stainless steel tank, it’s brought to a concentration of 20% to maximize the flavor, ripen tannins and develop color. The wine is aged about 15 months in new French oak barrels, with a production yield of 80,000 bottles.
