Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) From our La Finca estate, in the Apalta Valley, the 1999 vintage was our first Syrah. This is the scarcest of our Alpha wines. Yields are very low at only 6 tonnes per hectare. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for one year and has only one soft filtering. In the manner of Rhone producers, Aurelio adds a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, also originating from Apalta, and some Viognier, to the final mixture. Of intense ruby red color, it has a great aroma with floral, tobacco and leather notes. Strong and full-bodied on the palate, with soft and mature tannins. A very long, elegant and satisfying aftertaste. A superb Syrah.

    (2006 Vintage) Deep red. Expressive, pungent aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cherry, cedar, tobacco and dried flowers. Already quite complex, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors, gentle tannins and slow-building candied floral character. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with gentle grip and very good juicy persistence.
