Named in honour of Francisco de Carabantes, a Dominican friar credited with bringing the first grapevines to Chile in the mid-16th century, Carabantes Syrah (with around 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) is organically farmed and aged in French oak for 18 months prior to bottling.
Characterised by intense aromas of violet, rosemary and blueberries, the viscous palate boasts sweet blackcurrant and plum, with notes of pencil shavings, cedar, black tea and chocolate.
Elegantly structured with fine tannins, this can be laid down for 10 to 12 years from vintage.
