Vinification: Coming from the 174 and 99 clones, the grapes were harvested by hand from the fourth week of April through the first week of May. From the vineyard, they were carefully transported to the winery. Once there, the grapes were destemmed, gentlycrushed and sent to a stainless steel vat for fermentation. After six days of pre-fermentation, the selected yeasts were added. During the fermentation process, which reached temperatures of 26 28 degrees C, the must (juice with grape skins) was macerated with aerated recycling gradually moving the liquid from the bottom to top of the vat 1.5 times until the fermentation process reached half the alcoholic volume. The alcoholic fermentation was finalized by macerating the wine with the grape skins for one more week to achieve an improved structure and more character. Next the wine was separated from the grape skins which were then pressed to yield a second fraction of wine. After that, the wine was aged in 400 liters barrels (new and third use) where it remained for a period of 12 months. Finally, the wine in casks went through a process of cold stabilization and then was gently filtered prior to bottling.

Tasting Note: Introduced by a deep intense purple, this syrah releases a nose of small and fresh wild fruits such as huckleberries, redcurrants, raspberries and plums melted with slightly wet earth tones above a floral background. Meat and pepper touches seal the personality, and subtle tones of vanilla, oriental spices and smoky mints add even more charm. The palate presents a great juicy texture, escorted by numerous fine and tight tannins, making perpetually and elegantly grow the volume in the mouth. The natural freshness constantly allows the expression of the aromatic fan which explodes all along the impressive and promising finish.

Best Enjoyed: Within 8 years

Winemaker: Jose Pablo Martin
