Variety: Syrah
Appellation: D.O. Villa Alegre
Winemaker: Daniel Sepúlveda
Bottling: Estate bottled
Alcohol: 13%

 

VINIFICATION

The Syrah grapes were harvested by hand at the end of March. In order to extract color and aromas the must underwent skin contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging from 26° to 28°C during a seven-day period. The wine is then left to macerate for five additional days in order to extract its fruity characteristics. A very small percentage of this Syrah is placed in oak barrels in order to increase the complexity and elegance of the wine. Prior to bottling, the two lots of wines are blended together, stabilized and filtered.


NOTES FROM OUR WINEMAKER

Our Syrah has an intense red-violet color with shades of blue. It has a prominent cherry liquor aroma with notes of apricot jam and spices. Its tannins which are ripe and soft are complemented by a rich and balanced acidity.
