Marques de Casa Concha Syrah
Deep, bright ruby red with concentrated cherry and raspberry aromas. A refined texture carries the complex flavors of cherries, raspberries and licorice with remarkable structure. Lush and delicate on the finish.
VINEYARD OF ORIGIN:Quinta de Maipo Vineyard, D.O Buin, Maipo Valley.
VINEYARD DESCRIPTION: The Quinta de Maipo Vineyard is located 420 m a.s.l. and extends along the southern bank of the Maipo River at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The vines are clone 174 and massal selection and trellised to vertical shoot position. The stony characteristics of the vineyard’s alluvial soils and gravel to a depth of 2 meters deliver rounded, complex, and elegant tannins to the Syrah.
SOIL: Of alluvial origin with silty clay on the first horizon. Gravel predominates below the surface, which results in good permeability and low nutrient content.
CLIMATE: Semi-arid Mediterranean with a strong influence of the Andes Mountains. The pronounced difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures (approximately 18oC) extends the ripening period and both concentrates and intensifies the aromas in the grapes.
AGING: 16 months. 60% in French oak barrels, and 40% in 5,000-liter foudres.
AGING POTENTIAL: Drink now or cellar until 2022.
