CASA SILVA GRAN TERROIR DE LA COSTA SYRAH 2016
An elegant, full bodied, expression of Syrah from the Chile’s Colchagua Valley (blended with 3% Viognier to give it some aromatic lift). It pays homage to the home of this style, the Côte-Rôtie in the Northern Rhone, where small amounts of Viognier are often co-fermented with Syrah. It has nuanced aromas and flavours of black and red plum, blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, smoked meat, eucalyptus, leather, and black pepper. It works nicely with robust meats and game.
