In stock


Tasting Notes:

The 2015 Gran Syrah is a blend of grapes from the three main vine-growing valleys of San Juan: Tulum, Zonda and Pedernal. In this wet El Niño vintage, the destemmed grapes fermented in roto-fermentors with indigenous yeasts, and the wine aged in brand new French oak barrels for 15 months. It has a savory and showy nose, with spicy and almost salty notes, hints of smoked bacon and a core of ripe fruit, showing the wild character of the place. The palate is full-bodied, with fine-grained tannins and pungent flavors. A big Syrah with freshness for the barbecue. 100,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2017.

Tasting Notes:

Rich and complex, but no hint of overripeness. Lots of black peppers, blackberroes and some vanilla oak. The concentration is really impressive, and the generous tannins are very well-integrated. With a touch less oak this would have been rated higher. Drink or hold.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Finca Las Moras is a pioneer winery dedicated to the elaboration of high-quality wines in San Juan since the restructuring of the vineyards in 1993 by Richard Smart. The vineyards are surrounded by mulberry trees and therefore the name to the winery. San Juan focused in Shiraz and Malbec together with Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc is the new frontier for the production of fine wines in Argentina. The San Juan River is a vital source of irrigation in this region providing with pure melting snow water from the Andes to the Atlantic to give rise to Zonda and Tulum Valley unlike the Pedernal Valley – considered today as the valley by excellence for growing the highest-quality grapes – rise by glacier movements. Bright sunshine and extremely dry weather makes the valleys optimum for organically grown grapes. Finca Las Moras with more than 1.100 hectares of vineyards planted at the different valleys, is focused in sustainability, continue innovation and micro regions exploration culture contributing with complexity and elegance that impact in the fruit at each of its wines lines. Las Moras Gran Shiraz is a summary of these factors that reflects the selection of the best Shiraz grapes from Pedernal Valley (1350 meters), Zonda Valley (950 meters) and Tulum Valley (650 meters) Deep concern for the environment, ethnic respect, and passionate winemaking make our wines unique. Truly Argentinean wines. “Wines in harmony with the earth”.
