(2016) Leyda is a coastal vineyard area in Chile, part of a move away from the original central valleys, as producers seek a range of cooler growing areas, using elevation, latitude, and proximity to the ocean as the tools to do so. This has a really fragrant appeal, loads of high, tomato leaf and cherry character, herbs and flowers, and a gamy and peppery quality that speaks of cool climate Syrah. In the mouth it is beautifully  black-fruited, with the fleshy density of black plums, but also the tartness of the fresh acidity and tannin, just supported nicely by creamy oak. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
(2016) Subtle orange and grapefruit, just gentle herbaceous background. The palate has the same with such a rush of fresh grapefruit, clear acidity and a touch of mineral salts. Not hugely complex, but attractive. I cannot see this listed by Majestic at time of writing, but am assured they will carry it.
(2016) Made with 5% whole bunches there's a nice hint of spices and earthiness, those little touches of truffle, big juicy palate of bright cherry fruit. Full fruited on the palate, dry tannins to acid some grip and lemony acids. In Ireland and US, but not UK at time of writing.
(2011) Quite unctuous fruit on the palate hinting at lychee and mango.
(2010) Five percent of the blend was fermented in old barrels, but the nose retains fabulous green bean, almost austere aromas of piercing fruit and herb quality, the palate hinting at tropical sweetness but then the torrent of acidity sweeps through. Fireworks and fabulous.
(2010) Leyda. Much more grassy and crisp, but also flinty and smoky. That herbaceous punch comes through with lime and lemon fruit. Very crisp and grassy on the palate, with a big gooseberry punch of fruit, tropical overtones and lots of juicy citrus and minerality.
