De Martino Estate
De Martino Estate - Syrah, Choapa Valley 2013
Syrah is quickly becoming Chiles top quality red grape variety. This example by De Martino comes from the Moutainous Choapa Valley in the North where vines are grown at an altitude of 800-900 metres above sea level which means the grapes ripen slowly and receive a lot of sunshine aiding ripening and structure of the fruit. This is concentrated, with notes of Blackberry and raspberry, hints of herbs and a twist of spice on the fresh and lingering finish.
