Caliterra Tributo Single Vineyard Syrah Red Wine 75cl
Caliterra Tributo Shiraz 2014 is a single vineyard wine from the Caliterra Estate, Colchagua Valley. The wine was stored in oak barrels in which the malolactic fermentation was carried out, the tannins were fine tuned and rounded out, and a ripeness in its fruit expression was achieved associated to the unique characteristics of the oak it was stored in, creating a balance that provides a pleasant finish.Read more...

Intense and complex on the nose, it displays enticing floral and peppery aromas, gently accompanied by notes of sour cherries and blackberries. Soft accents of tobacco, fresh thyme and tarragon complete its mouth-watering bouquet. The wine feels fresh and juicy on the palate, with fine grained tannins and a long finish.
The grapes used for the Tributo Syrah come from specially selected lots from the Caliterra Estate in the Colchagua Valley, which extends from the Andes Mountains to the Pacific Ocean through a large part of the Tinguiririca River basin. The Coastal Mountains are lower in Colchagua than anywhere else in the country and allow cool ocean breezes to enter the valley every afternoon, which results in hot days and cool nights during the ripening season. The Caliterra Estate is located 200 km south of Santiago and 60 km from the coast at 150 meters above sea level. The 1,030 hectare property is comprised of 242 hectares under vines: 210 were planted in 1997-1998 and another 32 in 2005.
