Syrah Gran Reserva

“Being pioneers in Chile was an exciting challenge, and we have chosen a superb location.” Baron Eric de Rothschild
Domaines Barons de Rothschild acquired Viña Los Vascos in 1988, animated by a pioneering spirit and with the vision to reveal the potential of this exceptional land. Today we cultivate a common dream and project : to turn our vast land into a rich ecosystem producing the most elegant Chilean wines.

The vintage
The Los Vascos Cromas name inspired us with the colours of nature that reflect the terroir and the Los Vascos teams’ expertise.
With this new change, the drier-than-usual start to the season required early irrigation and meticulous monitoring of the vineyard. The major challenge for the 2019 vintage essentially resulted from the extremely high temperatures at the end of January and beginning of February (reaching 40.6°C). Fortunately, the much cooler nights, with a record low of 10.2°C, allowed high-quality grapes to be obtained with excellent ripeness and balance.

Tasting notes
Purple color with violet hues. Expressive nose of flowers, especially violets, packed with layers of red fruits like fresh plums and figs, and spices like black pepper and anise. Subtle oak aromas over a backdrop of graphite, tobacco, and cedar. Its delightful palate presence of balanced acidity, fine-grain tannins, excellent volume, perfect body, and long finish evidences its huge potential and hints a delicate and elegant evolution. A wine that takes you on a journey through the slopes of Los Vascos estate.
