Viña MontGras 2009 Antu Syrah - 88-89pts

Viña MontGras 2009 Antu Syrah (Colchagua Valley) Chile

Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $21.99
Alcohol: 14.5%
Date Tasted: March 23rd, 2012

Tasting Notes: Produced from fruit grown in the Ninquén Mountain Vineyard, Chile's first high altitude vineyard. The style is a close match to the Syrah made in the Okanagan: a nice blend of New World fruit and Old World terroir without the over ripeness from too much heat and extraction. Well balanced with good complexity and concentration for the price with a tasty spectrum of dark and red fruits on display. Has the tannins and acid to age well, should you care to wait, but is drinking beautifully now. Drink 2012-2016.
