2010 Viña Tamaya, Winemaker's Gran Reserva Syrah, Limari Valley

Sold Out

The Winemaker’s Syrah is a blend of 90% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% of Viognier…in respectful hommage to Côte Rôtie perhaps. After a cold soak and extended maceration, it has been matured, blended, for a year in 400 ltr barrels of differing ages. The wine has a dense colour and pleasing floral aromatics, with violets and lavender once again recalling the Rhône Valley. The palate marries eucalypt, blueberry and hints of forest floor. There is a high-tone feel to the piece, gently evanescent, quietly seductive. Simon Field MW, BBR Wine Buyer
