Colour: Rosy and rusty in color
Nose: Intense aromas and flavours include blackcurrant and blackcurrant leaf, sweet blackberries and blueberries, hints of white pepper, mint and violets.
Palate: On the palate mulberries add to the fruit character. There is also a little creaminess from the oak which lifts to leave some cinnamon spice and a hint of smoke on the finish. The texture of this wine is really velvety. There is a great balance of hardly noticeable tannins, lower than anticipated alcohol and that lovely fruit which also means that it will keep a few years if you have very strong willpower. A very food friendly wine; drink with lamb, beef and other red meats, turkey with cranberry sauce or spicy foods
Grape Varieties: Syrah 85%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%
Ageing: 18 mths Oak barrel aging
Awards: 90pts – Wine Enthusiast
History of Von Siebenthal
The philosophy behind Viña von Siebenthal is similar to that of the Bordeaux chateaux; vineyards, cellar and house blend together harmoniously to facilitate the creation of an exceptional wine.
Viña von Siebenthal’s four main vineyards are in the historical wine-growing area of Panquehue, in the Aconcagua Valley. This is a very small sub-apellation of the Aconcagua Valley in Chile and one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas in Chile for the production of red and white Bordeaux varietes. This is a semi desert area half way between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. This ideal climate ensures excellent phyto-sanitary conditions.
For the Merlot and the Cabernet Franc it is the cool clay-limestone soil of the plains, while the warm sandy, stony soil of the hills is ideally suited for the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Syrah, the Carmenère and the Petit Verdot.
