Winemaker Notes

Very bright color; elegant nose with black pepper and floral notes. The wine is full bodied and well balanced with very soft tannins, plus spicy and nice fruit character.

WW 91
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
How many of you think of Chile when choosing a Syrah? Not many, I suppose—not surprising, for Chilean Syrahs are just beginning to be recognized. The 2011 Falernia Reserva Syrah exhibits bold ripe fruit and smoky aromas and flavors. A wine that lasts and lasts on the palate, this is a good choice with richly flavored grilled meats. Drinking well now. (Tasted: February 1, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Reserva Syrah has aromas of cold bonfire, well-hung game, bacon fat, black olive tapenade, violets and tar (a textbook descriptor for cool-climate Syrah). The palate is medium-bodied, with plenty of fruit and velvety tannins, with good balance. It-s a great Syrah at very good price.

Falernia  Winery Image

In 1951 Aldo Olivier Granola’s family moved to Chile and in 1971 he started planting grapevines for Pisco production. Around that time Aldo became convinced of the potential for producing superb wines in this semiarid valley. The Falernia project was born after he and his cousin Giorgio Flessati, famed Italian oenologist, joined forces. Falernia is an innovative venture given that it is Chile’s most northerly wine estate, a considerable distance from the country’s main winegrowing areas. The driving force has been a passion for the wine and the challenge of transforming a tract of desert into a green vineyard with enormous potential for producing premium wines. They use the latest technology and have the support of agronomists from Chile’s top universities and worldrenowned oenologists.

Part of the Coquimbo region, also with the Limari Valley, Elqui Valley is one of the northern wine producing regions of Chile, which historically focused on table grapes and pisco production. Intense sunlight and cooling effects of the ocean, together with rocky, clay soil make this one of Chile’s up-and-coming wine regions.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
