Ventisquero Pangea Syrah

Like Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz is grown in many parts of the world. As a result, it can deliver many different expressions. The 2012 Ventisquero Pangea Syrah from the Alpalta vineyard in Chile tastes of red plum, backberry and black pepper. It has elements of a cool climate Shiraz, but is quite intense. This medium to full-bodied wine delivers good energy along the palate. The flavours are a bit same-same along the palate, but the structure of the wine is sound, and the flavours are appealing.

Score: 92/++
