The Wine

Finca La Anita wines are the spirit and soul of our terroir. Extraordinary wines to drink and age.

This Syrah is vinified from grapes at our Finca in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. These old vineyards are located at 900 meters above sea level and have a naturally low yield (4 to 5 t/ha). Surface irrigation. The vines are 85 year old Parral and the oldest on our estate.


Vintage Overview

A classic vintage in Mendoza; dry, fresh and sunny with moderate yields throughout the region from the lowest to the highest areas. This, together with lower rainfall than usual, resulted in fruit with optimal balance, good levels of natural acidity, lovely aromatic expression and soft tannins.


Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected cultivated yeast. Malolatic fermentation occurs spontaneously at controlled temperatures.

Winemaker

Soledad Vargas


Grape Variety

100% Syrah


Ageing

12 months in new and one year old French and American medium toasted oak barrels.

Tasting Note

This Syrah is a classic of our winery; robust, pleasant on the nose and mouth with crisp notes of blackcurrant, fresh blackberries and spices accompanied by a subtle note of vanilla contributed by the ageing in oak. Vibrant and refreshing acidity.

This wine demonstrates a versatility that makes it excellent to drink alone or paired with spicy meats, pasta, risottos and game.


Ready to drink but will age well for up to 6 years.
