Vinedos Alcohaz GRUS Syrah, Chile, 2014

About this wine

Another great New Wave Chile project started by De Martino's head winemaker - Marcelo Retamal who in 2005 planted here in Elqui what is currently Chile's highest vineyard. He makes 2 wines based mostly on Rhone varietals. Although far north enough to be very hot the altitude here makes for very cold nights-snow is common. GRUS is a blend of 50% Syrah 26% Grenache, 13% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot.Grapes are all foot-trodden in granite lagars and then fermented and matured in concrete eggs.

"Elqui project lead by De Martino's winemaker Marcelo Retamal. 2,000 m elevation. Aged in concrete eggs. Syrah with Grenache, Malbec and Petite Syrah. Very gentle and mouth-filling. Fabulous energy. Really very exciting. No rough edges at all."
