Za­pal­lar Syrah 2016, Outer Lim­its by Montes, Chile

The Week - - News | Sport -

From one coastal wine to an­other, sev­eral thou­sand miles away in Chile, only this time it is 100% Syrah, the wine of choice in the North­ern Rhone. Some­what dark and quite in­tense ripe black berry fruit with an over­lay of smok­i­ness. Au­re­lio Montes makes a point of plant­ing wines at the edge of their com­fort zone — hence the Outer Lim­its de­scrip­tion — which is a sound prac­tice as of­ten the best wine comes from vines that have to strug­gle for sus­te­nance. This wine is ideal with red meat or game.
