The Syrah vineyards are located in two sections of Rosario Valley, both are almost flat with a slight inclination to the north. The ground is of granite origin, deep and of coluvial. The grapes are from clones 174 and 300. The careful handling of foliage and the load along with controlled watering allow for yields less than 5 tons per hectare, thus achieving perfect and slow maturity of the grape in this cold climate of San Antonio. The fermentation took place in open tanks of 4 tons capacity. The grapes were cold macerated before fermenting with selected yeasts. The wine was later placed in carefully-selected casks of French oak, where the malolactic fermentation was carried out and then remained for 12 months before bottling. A dark violet color, almost black exhibiting the characteristic aromas of Syrah with notes of spices such as pepper, fruits such as black cherry and blackberry all mixed in a surprising complexity. It is concentrated on the palate; the tannins are firm but rounded. It is a balanced wine, fresh and with long persistent finish. This wine a great accompaniment to game, lamb and mature cheeses.
