Arboleda Brisa 2018

Valle del Colchagua, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileThe 2018 vintage was neither hot nor cold, allowing the fruit to ripen at its pace and to the taste of the winemaking team. The syrah has a red undercurrent led by a raspberry and blackcurrant leaf, with a touch of wildness. The palate offers even more red fruit with brightish acidity, pitching savoury black fruit, rosemary, and assorted dried herbs. The finish is soft and somewhat dry with a touch of pepper and balsamic. An intellectual red expression that is neither French nor Australian. The final mix is 36% syrah, 24% grenache, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 12% cabernet franc, and 8% mourvedre, all aged for 22 months in French oak barrels (38% new), and 15% in foudres.Tasted: 04 June 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
