The predilection of varietals

Although the bottle specifies aging in oak, we do not know how long it spent in contact with the noble material, it is of French origin.


Within the universe of varietals, I found one of my favorites. And so when it comes to choosing for the only pleasure of doing so, Syrah grape takes my predilection. Its acidity and astringency are, in my opinion, very valuable for the palate.

Today I try a 2013 Eduardo Félix Syrah from the Mendoza Llaver winery.

Although the bottle specifies aging in oak, we do not know how long it spent in contact with the noble material, yes it is of French origin.By the year of harvest, observe the condition of the cork becomes necessary to avoid unpleasant surprises that in this case were drawn by the quality of the stopper employee.

Served in the glass, it presents very good colors with plum red tones with marked and strong violet reflections, which get to dye the glass. Thin and slow legs show resinous remains of the passage through the barrel. As the glass is brought closer to the nose, aromas of sweet violets emerge along with berrys, tobacco and vanilla.

It's time to tilt my glass and try. The palate delivers very good acidity and the flavors of the aromas described above correspond with great sharpness, to which truffles, leather, licorice and graphite are added. It is complex and of great fleshiness, with notes of cloves, cocoa and a soft oak.It is a very balanced and round wine. Slightly velvety and quite unctuous. An exponent of great fidelity to its varietal.

The winery that Dr. Eduardo Félix Llaver began in 1964 is located in the east of the Province of Mendoza and 30 years later undertook the challenge of producing high quality wines. It was the hard work of this stage and strong foundations forged in its beginnings, which gave rise to this great Syrah that delights us today.
