Winemaker's Notes

60% Syrah 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes come from Estate Vineyards that are located in the foothills of the Maipo Valley. The grapes were harvested by hand and selected before crushed. This blend aged in French and American oak barrels for a period of 8 months. The wine was bottled for an additional ageing period of 4 months before release. With this, tannins were softened and matured. Ageing Potential: 5 to 7 years.

The wine shows a bright ruby color, with intense aromas of ripe red fruits, berries, cherries and plums, with spicy complexity. In the palate the wine shows good structure, soft ripe tannins with good complexity.

Serve with roasted meats, rich pâtés, pasta with meat sauces, roast prime rib, Cajun swordfish or tuna, Gruyère and Cheddar cheeses.
