Since 1874, in the heart of the Maipo valley, Viña Tarapacá has been crafting unique wines of outstanding quality. These estate bottled wines earned their first award in the US in 1876, and have been obtaining awards ever since.
Malbec Syrah is Viña Tarapacá’s last launch within varietal line. In this wine we tried to blend Malbec freshness and softness with a stronger variety. That is why we looked for inside Tarapacá, one of the best partners: Syrah.
Most of Malbec and Syrah used in this wine elaboration is sourced from our field in Isla de Maipo. The Malbec soil is alluvial, deep and rocky. Syrah is colluvial and poor rocky in the bottom of the hills. The fruit was fermented in stainless steel, to 26-29°C temperature, to keep the varieties character. Syrah had 4 month french oak contact before the release to the market.
