Echeverria Syrah Gran Reserva 2018

Viña Echeverria is a family-owned estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverria family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverria is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña Echeverria combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with a modern state of the art winery, to produce a range of over 20 quality wines from nine different grape varieties. It has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.

 

Vineyard

 

This wine comes from the Colchagua Valley, part of Chile's wine heartland. Situated on the 34th parallel south, between the towering Andes mountains and the cool Pacific Ocean, this privileged viticultural zone with its cold nights and warm dry days, intense sunlight and long growing season is ideally suited to produce healthy vines and grapes. The rows are planted in an east-westerly direction, to maximise the sun's exposure. Working with a model of micro viticulture, each plot, of no more than half a hectare, is identified according to its terroir and microclimate and planted accordingly. Grapes are subjected to specific pruning, irrigation, canopy management and harvesting, which results in grapes of optimum quality and flavour. The soils are alluvial in origin, mostly sand and loam, well-drained and with the presence of stones.

 

Winemaking

 

The grapes were fermented to dryness in 12,000 and 15,000 litre open stainless steel tanks over a period of eight days. Selected yeasts were used and the temperatures were maintained between 24 to 28°C. Once fermentation was complete, an extended skin maceration took place for an additional ten days. The wine then went through 100% malolactic fermentation, before being matured in 225 litre French oak barrels, for 12 months.

 

Tasting Note

 

A highly aromatic Syrah, blackberry, blueberry and raspberry characters are presented in this wine of great personality. Hints of bitter chocolate combine nicely with notes of black pepper, cinnamon and tobacco on the palate. Well balanced, with a juicy and long-lasting finish.

 

Serving Suggestion

 

Delicious with grilled or roasted red meats and stews, lamb tagine, steak, barbequed meats, spicy sausage and venison.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
