Valle Secreto Vineyards and Winery First Edition Syrah 2016

Valle del Cachapoal, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileFirst Edition is hand-harvested syrah from the Cachopoal Valley at elevation amongst the foothills of the Andes, 80 kilometres south of Santiago. It is fermented in stainless steel and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. You can expect a vibrant, bright style here, with a great deal of boldo or wild dried herbs in the mix of red fruits, pepper and lively acidity. Ther is a tug of tannins in the back end, so it needs a few years to pull it all together. Exciting effort and worth laying down a few bottles to see how it finally turns out. Try it now with lamb or pork dishes.Tasted: 25 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 37.98 private wine shops Producer: Valle Secreto Vineyards and WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
