Vina Morande, Edicion Limitada, Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon, Maule & Maipo ValleysVina Morande
Variety: 50% Syrah, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Maule Valley & Maipo Valley Chile
Vineyard and Viticulture:
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes come from San Bernardo, in the Maipo Valley. The soils are alluvial with a deep layer of stones, providing excellent drainage. The climate is a dry Mediterranean climate, refreshed by breezes that blow along the river gorge. The Syrah grapes come from Loncomilla, in the Maule Valley from a 63 year old Pais vineyard grafted in 2005. The soils are low fertility granitic-type soils with terracotta clay and a hot, dry climate.
The grapes are picked by hand into 10kg crates and undergo a double selection process, first cluster-by-cluster and then grape-bygrape. Vinification is carried out in the traditional Bordeaux style. The two varieties are made separately and aged for 16 to 18 months in barrel: French oak for the Cabernet and American for the Syrah. Finally each cask is classified and the two wines are mixed or blended together.
Aromas of forest fruits, dark chocolate, tobacco and spices. The palate has an abundance of smooth tannins, with an intensely fruity body and great freshness.
