Chono Syrah Elqui Valley Chile 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The Elqui Valley is fast building a reputation as the place in Chile to grow<br/>Syrah. With its semi-arid terrrain, tempered by the cooling Pacific Ocean , and<br/>wonderfully clear atmosphere (several observatories are located here), this has<br/>proved an ideal spot for Alvaro Espinoza to demonstrate his skills with this<br/>famously temperamental variety. Very low yields generate highly concentrated<br/>fruit, while maceration is gentle to avoid over-extraction. A deep Syrah<br/>colour, then a friendly nose of spice, black fruit and hints of macerated<br/>prune; the palate is beautifully soft with red and black fruit flavours and<br/>finely wrought tannins. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
