Description

An all-French varietal red blend that showcases Itata Valley, a cool climate area at the southern end of Chile’s wine producing regions.

Bravado is made up of young vine Syrah (40%), and Carignan, Grenache, Petit Verdot and Mourvèdre grafted onto century-old vines in the Piedra Lisa vineyard in the dry interior of Itata. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, this a powerhouse red, deep in colour and with powerful aromatics, mixing sweet black fruit with savoury notes of cedar, tobacco leaf, coffee bean and cacao.

Full and intense on the palate, decant and allow to breath for a couple of hours before serving up with roast beef or char-grilled meats, or even a good dark chocolate.

Producer: P.S. Garcia

P.S. Garcia is a project that began in 2006 when Felipe Garcia (left, above) produced his first wines from Casablanca Valley, the renowned cool climate region just 30km inland from Chile's Pacific coast. Felipe's vision was about creating wines of their place, in the early days Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir that would both reflect their place of origin and help further define and develop local identity and terroir. In expanding his regional exploration further south, to the regions of Maule and Itata initially, Felipe began working with the Mendoza family, father Patricio and sons Sergio and Nicholas, and the four formalised the partnership in 2017 with the rebranding and launch of multi-regional wines under the P.S. Garcia label.

Wines are broadly split between single varietal wines appropriate to their place, like the Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noirs from individual regions; wines that reflect a cross-regional approach to blending, taking the best Carignan from Maule and blending it with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from Itata for example; and new growth of overlooked or forgotten old world varietals grafted onto century-old rootstocks, redefining a region or individual vineyard's identity and capabilities.
