2018 Azuda Syrah, Clos de Luz, Almahue, Chile

2018 Azuda Syrah, Clos de Luz, Almahue, Chile

Regular price £19.99

Deep coloured with a nose of dark berries, pepper and herbs. Quite full bodied yet elegant, with real vibrancy and freshness on the gently tannic finish.

13.7% ABV. 

Highly recommended with red meats, lamb, veal and pork chops.

"Cropped from a cooler year, the 2018 Azuda Syrah has less alcohol than the 2017 and more freshness. Volumes grew, and the wine fermented in a 10,000-liter stainless steel tank with indigenous yeasts and matured for 12 months in used 300-liter oak barrels and some 6% in new 500-liter oak barrels. This feels juicier, rounder and a little more closed than the 2017. It's nicely textured, with the granite mouthfeel quite clear, dry, serious and long. I like the mineral sensation and the tasty, almost salty finish. 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019." Luis Gutierrez
