Gatonegro Shiraz / Syrah 750ml    
Sku: 1056065*

Maule Valley. VII Region, Chile (Central Valley) Inter-mountainous valley, with high temperatures during the ripening period, ideal for producing Syrah with deep color and ripe red fruit.

Tasting notes
Deep, dark, purplish-red in color with intense ripe redfruit aromas such raspberry and blackberry with hints of violet perfectly blended with sweet vanilla, smoke, and coffee notes. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins, nice balance, and a pleasing finish.

Wine maker notes
Harvest usually takes place in mid-April at 2324 brix with yields of 12 to 15 tons per hectare.

Technical notes
Upon reaching the cellar, the grapes are cold macerated for 2448 hours at 11C (52F). Fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures below 28C (82F), with 34 daily pumpovers to ensure good color and fresh fruit flavors. The must is racked off its skins part-way through the process to avoid excessive phenolic extraction, and fermentation continues with clean must. The entire process is aimed at producing wines with plenty of fruit intensity and a soft mouthfeel.

Food pairing
Perfect with beef fillet with tomato-based sauce, rich and spicy dishes, veal, lamb, and roast duck. Best served at 1517C (5963F)
