Gravas De Maipo 2007
Gravas del Maipo is born as a tribute by Concha y Toro to the majestic Andes and the hidden gravel from silently eroded, displaced and moulded soils year after year in the thousands of years old Maipo basin. It reflects the challenge of positioning Chile as a high-quality wine producer, together with the constant and passionate search for identifying those terroir's that faithfully express the character of a grape variety.
“The nose is ripe, minty and loaded with cassis and blackberry fruit. The palate displays extraction handled well, while accents of mint, spice, nutmeg and liquorice work great with core black fruit flavours. Juicy, deep and focused.
The 2007 Gravas de Maipo was sourced from the Quinta de Maipo Vineyard in Maipo planted at 1300 feet of elevation in 1967. It is composed of 88% Syrah and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 18 months in 80% new French oak. Initially reticent, with coaxing it offers up notions of smoke, game, bacon, mineral, and blueberry in the style of a top Cote-Rotie from France-s Rhone Valley.”
