Ninquen Syrah Antu 2009

Ninquen Syrah Antu 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1655119*

Blocks 180, 187 and 178 in the Ninquén vineyard in Colchagua Valley, between Chile’s Coastal Range and the Andes. Soil here is rich in clay, strewn with rocks and stones. Five-year-old vines are trellised using vertical shoot positioning.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 91 points (Sep 30 2012)
This dark, ripe red delivers jammy layered flavors of plum paste, fig and kirsch. Full-bodied, with well-embedded acidity and fine tannins, joined by hints of spice box, flint and olive on the long, driving finish. Drink now through 2015. 6,000 cases made. –NW Rated #62 in Wine Spectator’s 2012 Top 100

Wine maker notes
Grapes were handpicked in the third week of April 2003. After de-stemming, whole berries underwent maceration and fermentation, the juice remaining in contact with the skins for 25-28 days. The resulting wine was aged approximately 18 months in new French oak barrels, then bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve fruit concentration, color and intense aromas.
