Powerful reds; New World - SYRAH GRAN RESERVA, Casas del Bosque. Casablanca Valley, Chile

2016 SYRAH, Casas del Bosque. Casablanca Valley, Chile

Bin: 553
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: Casablanca Valley was Chile's first cool-climate area, making its name for crisp and elegant Sauvignon Blanc. A few producers have now planted Syrah on the best hillside vineyards - and are turning out wine that is truly Syrah rather than Shiraz
Grape Variety: 100% Syrah, matured for 12 months in French oak (around half new oak)
Producer: Large (245 hectares) but high quality family-owned producer in the west of Casablanca. Quality really on the up since the arrival of Kiwi winemaker Grant Phelps
Cellar Potential: Now - 2023
Food Match: Much easier to drink with or without food than many other serious reds in this section. Has the freshness to counterbalance a full-flavoured casserole
Old Bridge Rating: Lovely balance of new world purity and ripeness with fresh, aromatic, complex character. It's closer to Crozes Hermitage than to Shiraz
Press Reviews: Decanter Magazine: "Very ripe aromas. Spicy with blueberries, liquorice, smoked meat, notes of undergrowth and black olives."
