Montgras Antu Ninquen Syrah 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Ninquén (nin-ken) means “plateau on a mountain”, the name given to this first and unique Mountain Estate in Chile. Antu means "Sun of" and is the name given to this exciting mono-varietal range of new wines which offer the pure expression of the grape coupled with the terroir of the Ninquén estate. The fruit is carefully selected and handpicked exclusively from the Ninquén Mountain, located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley before an extended maceration period during fermentation and aging in barrique. This Syrah is deep, brooding, inky purple in colour with a developed, aromatic nose dominated by ripe black fruits and smoky oak. The palate is full bodied and concentrated, dripping with spicy blackberry fruit and a fair wedge of toasty vanilla oak, finishing soft, supple and rounded. Pair with rich dishes such as pan fried lamb cutlets with a cranberry & port reduction, braised beef fillets with a syrah sauce or a selection of mature cheese.

Premium Wines Crafted With a Personal Touch The beautifully neat vineyards of MontGras, in the locality of Palmilla, Colchagua, VI Region of Chile, represent the concrete testimony of the development and the desire to do things right that have always characterized the Gras brothers, Hernán and Eduardo, along with partner Cristián Hartwig. Inspired by Hernán Gras, who has a brilliant winemaking trajectory in Canada, along with the entrepreneurial vision of his brother Eduardo and Hartwig's pragmatic businesses view, who comes from a winemaking family and who in addition has strong bonds with Colchagua, joined together to give to life to Viña MontGras in 1993, the first project of MontGras Properties. MontGras, that has always had state-of-the-art technology in all its processes, set out from its conception to be the winery with the best premium wine from Chile. It is no accident then, the great amount of international prizes that have recognized the professional work, the constant quality and the innovation of MontGras wines. In this, like corporative culture, people have been key. As Hernán Gras, Chairman of the Board says, "our philosophy has to do with producing quality Chilean wines at exceptional value, which reflect the specific terroir from where the grape come from. Although we count on the equipment and the technology, it is definitively our people that make the difference. To create a wine is a true art in which all the senses are used." Read less
