PANGEA APALTA SYRAH CHILE 2009
Crafted by former Grange custodian John Duval there is plenty of bold flavours here.Granitic soil with reddish clay, and quartz and iron mineral deposits characteristic of the Apalta terroirs. The soil has a depth ranging between 1.5 and 2 metres and is located 250 to 300 meters above sea level. Pre and Post ferment maceration, 100% French oak (50% new) for 20 months. It’s a full on wine with plenty of ripe fruit and power. There is a lot to love here for Barossa fans. The wine is drinking well now and will easily last another 5 or more years yet. Pair it with big flavours, roast beef or some red meat off the BBQ.
