Food Pairings for Viña Maquis Syrah Blend Colchagua Valley Lien
"Vina Maquis Lien is a blend of Syrah, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes, resulting in a disinctive wine that reflects the special plot of land the Hurtado Vicuna family owns in the Colchague Valley in Chile. The vineyards and winery are located at the confluence of two historic rivers, the Chimbarongo and the Tinguiririca, which brought down from the Andes sediments that established teh vineyard's alluvial soils, and channel cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean, contributing to the richness and fruitiness of the wines. Ricardo Rivadeneira Hurtado and his team pride themselves in creating such a generous red wine full of character and a sense of place. Blend: 50% Syrah, 23% Carmenere, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec In Chile's native Mapuche language, lien means silver metal""a reference to colonial Spanish coins that were once melted to make fine jewelry, like the lizard on the Maquis label.
