External Reviews for Oveja Negra Cabernet Syrah Blend
Expressive aromas of cherries, spice and wild berries, with green pepper notes blended with gentle oak tones. Our Oveja Negra winemakers selection Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah comes from the Maule Valley, 260 km south of Santiago, Chile. The valley features tremendous geographic diversity and a Mediterranean climate with well-defined seasons, including a warm, dry summer with a significant difference between daytime and night time temperatures and a cold, rainy winter. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah red grape vines come from the La Esperanza vineyard. Both varieties present a naturally balanced yield of 8-10 tons per hectare, and therefore no cluster thinning was necessary. Grapes : 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Syrah Region : Chile / Maule Valley Maker : Edgard Carter Notes : Wonderful expressive bouquet with aromas of cherries, spice and wild berries, with green pepper notes blended with gentle oak tones. Serve : Serve with roast beef or vegetable lasagne ABV : 14% Suitable for Vegetarians
Via’s definition of Black Sheep is someone special and out of the ordinary, someone who attracts attention, who captivates, and has character and personality. Step forward: Oveja Negra!
Juicy and well-balanced with plenty of fruit flavour leading to notes of spice and a soft touch of caramel. With firm, ripe tannins, this wine has a pleasingly persistent finish.
