Apalta Valley, ChileFrom their La Finca estate, this is the scarcest of the 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, a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, also originating from Apalta, and some Viognier are added 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.
