Tasting Note

Intense aromas of damson, black cherry, woodsmoke, bacon fat and fine new oak. In the mouth, it is intensely-flavoured with soft, plushy, velvet texture. The aromas and flavours are very northern Rhône valley, while the texture is reminiscent of old vine Barossa Shiraz. With exposure to air, the Viognier's apricot and honeysuckle lift add further complexity. Fabulous, long finish, with perfume, spice and oak mingling beautifully on the finish. Sophisticated, classy and gorgeous.

Winemaking

From some of the highest elevation vineyards in Mendoza - Los Árboles, in the exciting Uco Valley region, grapes for this wine are grown at 1,250 meters above sea level. At this altitude, the extreme fluctuation between day and night temperatures fixes fantastic freshness in the wine, while the high UV levels result in intense colour.

Food Recommendation

Ideal to combine with grilled red meats, wild game, goat, and beef stews and semi hard cheses.

Press

  • 94/100 - The syrah here shows complexity and tension with lots of slate, meat, spice and blueberry. Full body, silky tannins and a long finish. Co-fermented syrah with 3% viognier. Think Côte-Rotie when you taste this. Drink or hold.

  • 93/100 - Produced as a joint venture with Californian winemaker Joey Tensley, the 2013 Iscay Syrah-Viognier fermented the two grapes together, but the white grape represented no more than 3% of the volume. The grapes come from a cool area (and from a cool vintage), Los Árboles in Tunuyán in the Valle de Uco. The Viognier was in full clusters and so was 15% of the Syrah, and it fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts. It went through malolactic and 15 months aging in new French oak barriques. It's smoky, floral, perfumed and very showy, an explosion of aromas, very attractive with clear varietal aromas. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with some grainy tannins and nice freshness, both from the year and the place. This is very impressive. Well done!
