These lands are magical – they hide astonishing mysteries! When construction began to build the winery a dinosaur was unearthed and in tribute to this 75million year giant, the name Saurus was given in tribute! Alpataco is a shrub commonly found in the Monte Desert, which lies southeast of the Atacama Desert in Chile, north of the larger Patagonian Desert, and east of the Andes. Located at 39’ Latitude South in San Patricio del Chanar near Neuquen the Schroeder vineyards are planted on gravelly soils and combined with warm days and cool nights provide near perfect conditions for grape cultivation. This is a distinguished range of wines with intense aromas and elegant tannins, well structured and with the best characteristics of each vintage.
Very intense purplish red in colour. Complex on the nose with a combination of red fruits such as cherries and a hint of violets. The palate is smooth with a velvety mouth feel, this is a fresh and fruity wine that carries backcurrant, black cherry, plum and violet. The mid-palate has delicious notes of vanilla and chocolate notes from ageing in small oak barrels. A full bodied wine with excellent structure held together by firm and grippy tannins with a long chocolatey finish. £10.95 14%Abv
