Chilean Syrah to Savour

Attending today’s boutique wine tasting I tried a really exciting Syrah:

Casas del Bosque Gran Reserva Syrah 2007
Casablanca Valley

The colour is an enticing and lustrous, opaque blackberry blue-black.

The nose is rich, creamily ripe and fruity with pure cassis and blackberry notes.

The palate is mouth filling and supple showing ripe black fruit, smooth tannins and a delicate dusting of spicy oak and white pepper characters as well as savoury herb nuances.

The finish is long, smooth and deliciously fruit filled while the overall sensation is elegant and fine.

I think this is very good example of Syrah and find it really interesting that a cool area like Casablanca is finding its way with this grape which is relatively new to Chile – 90 points.

Around £12.99 a bottle.
