If anyone has any doubts about the origin of Furque's vines, drink this! Only grapes situated 3000+ feet above sea level could reveal such vibrant acidity as those in this Syrah, especially in South America. Which is not to say it is lacking in the fruit and structure departments. Up front the Syrah is lush and full-bodied, but the burst of acid comes through on the back-end, like a little voice whispering (ok, shouting) in your ear that this wine needs to be paired with some grilled flank steak, peppers, onions, and chimichurri sauce.
