Gravas del Maipo Syrah 2018

Gravas del Maipo is born as a tribute by Concha y Toro to the majestic Andes and the hidden gravel from silently eroded, displaced and molded soils year after year in the thousands of years old Maipo basin. It reflects the challenge of positioning Chile as a high-quality wine producer, together with the constant and passionate search for identifying those terroirs that faithfully express the character of a grape variety.

“Dense and powerful, with layers of dark fruit fringed by concentrated smoke and Asian spice notes. ­The muscular finish is filled with dark chocolate and espresso accents that are rich and alluring.” -Kim Marcus
