Excellent, if not exceptional. Full mouth feel, kind of jammy. Will buy again, though not for everyday drinking.
Our Las Kuras Syrah 2009 is the first edition of this wine under the Organic Certification of Ceres. To reduce the cooling necessity at the winery we hand harvested all the grapes at night in small plastic cases of 14 kilos and sent them in refrigerated trucks to our winery in Colchagua. We carefully selected the best fruit, 95% went through the optical selection of Vistalys and 5% was hand destemmed at Clos Apalta Winery. Then fermentation occurred with wild yeast in wooden and steel vats. During the process we manually punched down the cap to increase skin contact. Malolactic fermentation was employed in barrels. Year after year our Syrah is showing a special complexity of aromas; with spices, black fruit and some minerality. In the mouth the wine is concentrated and yet elegant.
