The passion for Syrah is the concept that best defines the nature of POLKURA.
Polkura is the original Syrah. It is the first member of the family. This wine is a blend of the different blocks of the vineyard, where more fruity components coming from more sun exposed blocks are combined with spicier lots from shaded sites. I love this truly decadent Chilean Syrah. It’s a “home run” for a wine!
The nose is thick and almost offensive to those who prefer mild wines: roasted plums and black cherry, nuances of Asian spice flanked by dried meaty flavors; bittersweet chocolate and a slightly creamy finish. Elegant. Perfect for any wine geek.
