Vina Mayu Syrah 2008 (Elqui Valley)

Tasted 19/02/11 with Sara, Jane and Alex. 14% ABV. £9 UK retail. Not quite in the same league as their reserva, but a lovely wine nonetheless from this up-and-coming Chilean estate. Deep purple colour, cassis, coffee and white pepper on the nose, damsons on the palate, elegant with soft tannins. Classic cool climate syrah - infinitely preferable to overcooked Aussie shiraz. From 2011, 16/20.
