VINA ECHEVERRIA SYRAH
Located 65 km (40 mi) north of Santiago, this small wine region is famous for producing some of Chile’s greatest red wines. At 22,828 feet (6,956 meters), Mt. Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas, towers over the valley and its snow-capped peak lends essential mineral-laden water to the valley below. Daily breezes moderate the otherwise high temperatures found in the Aconcagua Valley and reduce the risk of vine disease. The Antarctic ‘Humboldt Current’ which flows up the west coast of Chile helps to maintain this effect.
Roberto Echeverria Jr has been the Chief Winemaker at Vina Echeverria since 2001. Inspired by his French heritage, Roberto’s signature style produces wines with a combination of Old World elegance and New World energy. More European viticultural techniques include timely harvesting to avoid over ripeness and therefore good balance and control of alcohol levels. Focus is on French varietals, barrels and yeasts, as well as longer fermentation and aging in barrels, and diverse blending.
Deep garnet red with violet gleams. A highly aromatic Syrah with aromas of berry fruits such as blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. Hints of bitter chocolate combine nicely with notes of black pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. A well balanced mouth feel with a long and juicy finish.
Pairs well with grilled or roasted red meats. Lamb tagine, steak, barbecued meat, spicy sausage or venison.
