Odfjell Vineyards, Santiago

Aliara Premium Blend, 2011


750 ml

Varietals: Malbec 40%, Cabernet Sauvignon 32%, Carignan 18% & Syrah 10%

Tasting Notes: 
In the age of sail ships, safe and healthy provisions were crucial for the success of the adventure. A “liara” was a tin cup measurement for the crew´s daily ration of wine. Aliara is an assemblage made in small and precious quantities as a tribute to this tradition.
Concentrated deep violet in color. The nose is attractive and intense with a range of aromas from the different varieties in the blend, including dry fruit aromas such as hazelnuts, dates and dried figs, floral notes of jasmine and roses and, finally, hints of chocolate. The palate is sophisticated and intense, with flavors of dark plum and dried berry, accented by smoky notes. The finish is long with ripe and velvety tannins.
