Terra Vega, Bin No. 957 Syrah 2014, Central Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: Quaffing weekday wine.
Medium-intensity ruby in color this syrah has a nose of black plum, red cherry and red currant with hints of blackberry and green pepper.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied syrah is straightforward with red and black fruit suggested on the nose.
The wine rests on a medium-minus tannin structure and medium acidity that completes with a short, tart finish.
A simple, no-fuss Chilean syrah.
Bottle Note: Our Terra Vega syrah shows a deep red colour with powerful and distinctive varietal aromas of blackberries and plums mixed with delicate floral characters. On the palate it is soft, medium-bodied with generous flavours and round tannins.
