This first vintage of Koyle Royale Syrah is deep to bright purple, with aromas of fresh meat, wild berry, black cherry and a hint of herb. The texture is silky, harmonious, and concentrated – refined and beautiful. It has an elegant style that remains generous and welcoming, with an open, textured finish. The wine can be cellared for up to ten years, and decanting up to 30 minutes before serving is recommended.
"The 2007 Royale Syrah spent 18 months in French oak. It is deep purple in color with a nose of cigar box, Asian spices, menthol, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered on the palate, with succulent flavors, good balance, and a lengthy, pure finish, this first-class effort will provide pleasure through 2019."
The Wine Advocate
"Nicely concentrated and showing a full bouquet of minty black fruit, leather, spice and herbs. The palate is tannic and ripe, with black cherry, blackberry and an outlying salty, meaty accent. Finishes dry and controlled, with spice and mint. A prime wine from the Undurraga family."
