Novas Winemaker's Selection Syrah 2007 Casablanca Valley

Tasted 10/10. Ca. £11 Majestic
This is a wonderful cool climate syrah and a fine example of what Chile can do at its best. A winery with a stellar reputation has produced this gorgeous and incredibly drinkable wine (despite the 14.5% ABV). This is superb value for money. The nose is full of notes of chocolate and toffee, with some tar and caramelised sugar thrown in. Long and full on the palate, this is an elegant and very well made wine. Refined and fruity but not too dry. I am going to buy a few more bottles and see if it ages well. It's great to drink now - it's almost 4 years old after all. I scored it 17.5 / 20
