In Chile’s cool, high Elqui Valley, on the southern edge of the Atacama desert, Aldo Olivier Gramola and Giorgio Flessati’s Viña Falernia estate is a "pioneering, maverick winery, single-handedly responsible for putting Elqui on Chile’s fine wine map," (Peter Richards in The Wines of Chile).
The cousins wowed the wine world when their 2005 Alta Tierra Gran Reserva Syrah won a Trophy on its first release. They continued the theme, winning another Trophy and Gold for 2007 and 2009, and Gold for the 2010. The critics were in raptures:
"Lots of spicy, warm fruit, rich Syrah, quite mouth-filling and sexy but not over the top” (Steven Spurrier)
“Very hedonistic, deep, dark and velvety fruit, with a hint of pepper and some exotic incense” (Tom Cannavan)
When you taste the magnificent Alta Tierra Syrah Gran Reserva 2016 vintage, you’ll soon see why! It’s a pure, exhilarating, spice-filled Syrah – a real taste of opulence. It displays luscious black cherry and liquorice characters, framed with notes of spice from careful oak ageing, and a lush, almost smoky aroma. It’s incredibly intense, but time in the bottle has given it a rich velvetiness that makes it beautiful to drink now, especially with your finest cut of steak.
