Hacienda Araucano, Humo Blanco, Reserva Syrah



Francois Lurton (of the famous Bordeaux family) is renowned for creating distinctive and high-quality wines. He purchased the Araucano Estate in the year 2000 after realising the potential of the cool, ocean influenced site at Lolol in the Colchagua Valley, Chile. The estate has 26 hectares of vines and is certified organic. The estate also works to biodynamic principles. The wine undergoes cold storage and cold pressing, then fermentation in cement and stainless steel vats. There is regular cap plunging and 35 days maceration on the skins. It then undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels, regular agitation for two to three months before ageing in one-year-old barrels. It’s a ruby colour with good depth and purple highlights. It has aromas and taste of white pepper, liquorice, black cherries and warm spice leading to an elegant, supple finish. Drink with duck breast with green pepper sauce.
