Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple-black in color, with heady aromas of red cherries and black pepper. The palate is rich and inviting with ripe forest fruits and sweet smoky, mineral flavors typical of the terroir.
My Notes:

About Jelu:

At Jelu Estate, they believe in the concept of terrior. That is why Jelu wines are made in different regions within Argentina to showcase the adequate climate and terrior characteristics, leading to extraordinary varietals.

Our Syrah and Torrontes varietals have a great potential in San Juan region, where grapes perfectly grow along the Zonda Valley. As the soil is extremely stony and sunny, we can obtain good maturation and concentration of the grapes, achieving dry and mineral flavors proper for Jelu style.
