Gravas del Maipo once again shows its solid performance with 93 points in Wine Spectator



The previous vintage also received 93 points in the same publication. The first vintage of winemaker Enrique Tirado’s Gravas del Maipo, 2007, was widely applauded by the world’s major wine publications and Chile’s three most important wine guides, which unanimously named it the country’s Best Syrah.

“In the third vintage of Gravas del Maipo, the wine shows great complexity and intensity, marked by dark fruits such as blackberries and blueberries that mingle with notes of chocolate and tobacco to lend complexity and a unique style to the wine. The palate has very good concentration, volume, and density. Its both broad and deep.Very lush, with soft and silky tannins and a tremendously persistent finish,” comments its winemaker, Enrique Tirado.

Gravas del Maipo 2009 is 89% Syrah (from the Quinta de Maipo Vineyard in the Maipo Valley) and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon (Pirque Viejo Vineyard, Maipo Valley).

Dark and concentrated, with juicy acidity supporting a floral-tinged core of macerated plum skin and blackberry coulis notes finely woven with layers of baking spice, game, graphite and grilled herb.
