This syrah is made from grapes cultived at the Buin Vineyard (Quinta de Viluco) on the south bank of the Maipo river at 1,640 feet above sea level. The limited-production wine was ged in French oak for sixteen months. Blackberry, plum, and redcurrant arromas meld seamlessly with black pepper and spice notes. Overrall, it falls full and complex on the palate, that finishes wonderfully smooth and long.
100% Syrah. Vinya Concha y Toro was established in 1883 by Don Melchor, a successful businessman who regularly traveled to Europe. He took vine cuttings from vineyards in Bordeaux and brought them back to his estate in the Maipo Valley, where he planted them. The rest, as they say, is history. With over 21,700 acres of vineyards in some of the best locations in both Chile and Argentina, Vinya Concha y Toro has complete control over wine quality from the planting of grape varieties to harvesting, cellaring, and bottling. This Syrah Special Reserve was created in tribute to the title conferred in 1718 by King Felipe V of Spain upon the Concha y Toro family. From a very limited production of their prime Buin Vineyards in the Maipo Valley, this Syrah embodies Concha y Toro's culture and tradition in the art of winemaking.
