(2021) The Limarí Valley is another relatively new, northern valley that has quickly earned a reputation for Syrah in particular. This comes from coastal vineyards composed of stony, clay soils over limestone and is aged in French oak for around 20 months, 20% new barrels. Cool, creamy and red-fruited on the nose, there's an elegance and lift to this, some violet-like notes and a buoyant character. Excellent fruit on the palate too, more on the blackcurranty spectrum now, the obvious cooler climate credentials of acidity and tension are there, smooth but firm into the finish. Price and stockist quoted is for the previous vintage at time of review.
