Montes Folly Syrah 2017 75cl
This has to be one of Chile's finest and most premium Syrahs. It is rich and smoky with a great concentration of ripe and supple tannins. The aroma and palate consist of smooth leathery, pepper and spice filled characters. Produced from a single vineyard this wine gives intensity that gives a long and fragrant finish.
Syrah grapes are sourced from a single parcel on the highest, steepest slopes of the 'Finca Apalta' in Apalta, arguably one of the finest sites for red wine grape growing in Chile. Vines are planted on 45° slopes providing good exposure to aid ripening. Even at 60km away, the ocean holds influence, with its cool breezes moderating this warm area. Low night-time temperatures further prolong ripening, allowing for the slow development and retention of varietal aromas and acidity.
Vegetarian and vegan friendly!
