Yesterday afternoon, we visited Bressia Winery as part of our wine training circuit.
Mary Bressia and Walter Bressia Junior received us and as always, we had a great time and tasted amazing wines. In this occasion, we could taste their most recent wine launched into the market just a couple of days ago; Bressia Monteagrelo Syrah 2007.
Fortunately, I have the chance to talk to many winemakers in Mendoza, including our famed consulting winemaker Santiago Achaval, and most of time, they agree that Syrah is one of the red grape varietals with an exciting latent quality but that it hasn’t been explored as much yet in Argentina.
Well, I have to say that Bressia’s Syrah, confirmed this encouraging notion towards this varietal. It is a powerfully flavored and full-bodied Syrah. It has a wide range of aromas ranging from violets to blackberries, white pepper and as it breathed some earthy notes and leather could be felt. Well- balanced and velvety with a finish that is not extremely long but absolutely pleasant!
Just for you to start imagining this syrah, taste some of Bressia wines we have available in our On Line Store.
