Andrea's Wine of the Month

Date Posted: 06/02/2008

Maycas del Limari Syrah 2005

A wonderful new find! Available from Majestic at around £11 or try a search on-line.

From the Concha Y Toro stable this premium wine is produced in the Limari Valley, Chile's most northerly wine region, where the weather is cool and water scarce. The soils are rich and deep with high quantities of lime which is excellent for grape production.

The wine itself is intense purple in colour with complex aromas of cassis and black cherries overlaid with concentrated chocolate. The palate is equally interesting with black fruits and hints of liqourice and chocolate. The tannins are firm and the acidity will balanced.

This wine is still youth and will continue to evolve over the next 5 years.
