Polkura - Chile - Syrah 750ml
Wine Enthusiast 92 This is yet another in a growing line of excellent Syrahs from Polkura. Licorice and foresty aromas come with a measurable amount of coconutty oak. While the acidity on this is a touch amplified and gritty, flavors of blackberry, chocolate and dark spices are highly satisfying in a hedonistic way. Drink through 2023.
POLKURA is the name of a little hill, located inside the vineyard. On its slopes grow the grapes which make this wine. POLKURA means "Yellow Stone" in the native Chilean Mapuche language, making reference to large amounts of yellow granite spread along the clay soils of the area. Decomposed granite imparts the wine minerality and elegance, whereas clay gives it body and structure. The moderate coastal climate adds spice and fruitiness, resulting in a fine, yet complex and full bodied wine with very good balance.
