Chilean Dessert Wine

Chilean Dessert Wine

Sainsbury's Mayu Reserva Syrah 2009

Despite being on the southern edge of the Atacama, 530km north of Santiago,  the Valle de Elqui is a refreshingly “cool climate” region, benefitting from the steep slopes of the Andes and the cooling Pacific breezes.  They say on the Wines of Chile website, the region is perfect for Syrah and on this evidence,  I concur.
Sainsbury’s MAYU RESERVA SYRAH 2009 is packed with vibrant damson fruit that is spicy, peppery and rich. It has freshness, length and some bottle age complexity. A lot of bang for your peso!
