Expresión Reserve Syrah, Casablanca Valley, 2017

Lot: 1130 Supplier: VILLARD ESTATE Country/Region: Chile/Casablanca Vall Major Grape: Syrah

Not only was the 2017 harvest small due to the hot dry summer, but Villard Estate was plagued by rabbits that year. The long-eared pests stripped the bark from vines in order to get at the sap to quench their thirst. Sadly, the result was the loss of six hectares of vineyards. The good news is that the wines are delicious. Expresión Reserve Syrah 2017 is deeply coloured and intensely aromatic with red and dark cooked forest fruits, fresh crushed blackberries and some vanilla. It is smooth with a vibrant acidity, producing a lively and fresh wine with flavours of red cherries and raspberries. Various lots of Syrah were picked by hand and vinified in small tanks with an average of seven days of maceration at cool temperature prior to fermentation. It was matured for nine months in oak with 70% French and 30% American.
