Marques de Casa Concha Syrah 2018

Deep, bright ruby red with highly concentrated cherry and raspberry aromas. A refined texture carries the complex flavors of cherries, raspberries and licorice with remarkable structure. Lush, fine, and delicate on the finish.

General description

Variety / Style

  • Syrah

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

  • Quinta de Maipo Vineyard, D.O Buin, Maipo Valley.

Vineyard

The Quinta de Maipo Vineyard is located 420 m a.s.l. and extends along the southern bank of the Maipo River at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The vines are clone 174 and massal selection and trellised to vertical shoot position. The stony characteristics of the vineyard’s alluvial soils and gravel to a depth of 2 meters deliver rounded, complex, and elegant tannins to the Syrah.

Soil

Of alluvial origin with silty clay on the first horizon. Gravel predominates below the surface, which results in good permeability and low nutrient content.

Climate

Semi-arid Mediterranean with a strong influence of the Andes Mountains. The pronounced difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures (approximately 18oC) extends the ripening period and both concentrates and intensifies the aromas in the grapes.

AGING

16 months. 60% in French oak barrels, and 40% in 5,000-liter foudres.

Composed on the bouquet, with generous aromas of marzipan, cedar, olive and high-grade dark-berry fruits, this pure, powerful Syrah from a warm year is bursting with plum, raspberry and boysenberry ­flavors along with chocolate and fine oak. A finish graced by mocha and coffee fl­avors is smooth in feel after an initial acidic blast.
