Casas del Bosque Gran Reserva Syrah

Juan Cúneo Solari founded Casas del Bosque in 1993, at a time when the Chilean wine industry was pursuing quantity over quality. All fruit of this cool climate Syrah was sourced from vineyards located within the coolest, westernmost reaches of the Casablanca Valley.
A blend of 11 to 16 year old vines sourced from hillside blocks with northern exposure, planted on 110 million year old decomposed granite with a thin topsoil of red, iron-rich clay.
