Polkura Marchigue Syrah 2012 750ML        
Sku: 66341

Free Mix & Match Case Shipping!

A 95 point full-bodied red for under $15, plus special free shipping...we could probably just stop there, but we can't help gushing about our latest find from winemaker Sven Bruchfeld and Polkura!

The project started about 10 years ago, when Bruchfeld and partner Gonzalo Munoz planted twelve hectares on the Polkura hill, a tragically neglected property in the Marchigue area of the Colchagua Valley. If you look at pictures of the property, you would see many similarities between Marchigue and the famed hill of Hermitage in France's Northern Rhone. The soil and climate are geared towards Syrah, and that's exactly what they planted. Obscure and hidden to most of the wine world, we found Polkura as a member of "MOVI," the Movement of Independent Vintners. It's an amazing bottle for the price, one to decant and enjoy with some grilled meats!

Rating
“This is amazing with so much gun metal, flint, granite and dark berry character. Full body, fine tannins and a long and intense finish. Fabulous. Drink now.” James Suckling, 95 Points

Wine maker notes
Sven Bruchfeld (formerly of Vina Santa Carolina) and Gonzalo Munoz vowed to craft the finest, boldest Chilean Syrah possible, and we believe they have. They do so on a tiny scale, so it's still only known to insiders. That said, with 90 points from the likes of Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast & James Suckling, they won't be able to hide their Syrah under a bushel for long. Polkura is a little hill at the western end of Colchagua Valley. The name means "yellow stone" a reference to the yellow granite that mingles with the clay soils there and it's on these cooler, south facing slopes that their Syrah grows. The micro-climate lends a lovely pepper complexity to sublime blackberry, fig and licorice notes.
