Drink now or cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

The founder of this winery Mauro von Siebenthal first visited the Aconcagua Valley in the 1990s and soon realised that Chile could be the place where he could achieve his lifelong dream of making wine. He left behind his native Switzerland in 2009 to move here permanently, focusing his attention on founding and developing his own winery and planting the pristine land with Bordeaux and other international varieties.

The terroir here is ideal for premium winemaking thanks to the long, hot summer days and alluvial and granitic soils. This refined Syrah is named after Don Franscisco de Carabantes, the Dominican friar who brought the first grapevines to Chile in the 16th century. The grapes for this wine are sourced from 20 year old vines with the young wine aged in oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.

Succulent notes of blueberries and cherries immediately burst out of the glass followed by hints of violets, rosemary and baked earth. On the palate there’s a generous full body, smooth tannins and a long finish with lingering touches of spice and vanilla from the oak ageing. Ideal for cellaring for a few more years or enjoying now with flavoursome dishes like barbecued ribs, lasagna, aubergine parmigiana, or hearty stews.
