Errazuriz La Cumbre Syrah 2013

Errazuriz were the first to introduce Syrah to Chile back in
the early 1990s. This is their top cuvée, displaying depth,
power and complexity

This vintage is balanced and
harmonious, offering a beautiful freshness. Lavender, violets,
blackberries and blueberries captivate the nose. Subtle
smoky bacon adds a savoury essence to the wine's signature
spicy notes. Its voluptuous texture with its fine grained
tannins provide a perfect foil for the intensity and richness of
the layered fresh fruit ensuring that it is drinkable now but
will age for years to come.

Errazuriz La Cumbre Syrah 2013

The floral perfume nuance that defines La Cumbre is truly
vibrant in the 2013 vintage. This vintage is balanced and
harmonious, offering a beautiful freshness. Lavender, violets,
blackberries and blueberries captivate the nose. Subtle
smoky bacon adds a savoury essence to the wine's signature
spicy notes. Its voluptuous texture with its fine grained
tannins provide a perfect foil for the intensity and richness of
the layered fresh fruit ensuring that it is drinkable now but
will age for years to come.
Vineyard
The grapes for La Cumbre are sourced from the best lot of
our Syrah plantings in our Don Maximiano Vineyard, located
in the interior of the Aconcagua Valley, as well as from our
Manzanar Vineyards in Aconcagua Costa. Don Maximiano's
many microclimates, soil types, elevations and exposures
include high density plantings (from 5,500 to 10,000 plants
per hectare), high rock component in the soils (up to 70%)
assuring low vigour and excellent drainage. Our Manzanar
vineyard, located just 12 km from the Pacific Ocean, is a
property of 1,047 hectares of rolling hills that produces Syrah
of great aromatic intensity, loads of red fruits and high acidity
that lends it plenty of freshness and nerve.
Winemaking
Grapes for La Cumbre are hand harvested in the cool
morning hours, double-sorted, destemmed, crushed and then gravity fed into stainless steel
tanks. Fermentation of individual lots took place at 26 to 28 degrees spending between 6 and 28
days in tanks. wines are aged in French oak for up to two years, 50% new barrels, then brough
together and the final La Cumbre blend is created. The wine is then bottled and laid down for yet
another year before release.
Vintage
A superb growing season characterised by its cool conditions, particularly in the northern and
coastal areas of Chile. Spring was marked by cool temperatures and rains concentrated in the
month of October that recharged the soils and provided enough water for the plants to grow well
early on. Flowering and fruit set occurred later than previous years. However, it was a very good
set producing small clusters of concentrated berries. Summer's growing conditions were mild
with the exception of the month of February where we experienced higher than average
minimum and maximum temperatures which helped to give a needed push to the ripening
process.
