In 1952 Ernesto Che Guevara ventured on a magical journey through the wilderness of Patagonia on his precious Norton 500 which he nicknamed La Poderosa – the powerful one. The journey was immortalised in the film Motorcycle Diaries. La Poderosa Syrah Reserva is a fine example of Chilean Cabernet; it is a very intense red purple colour. The seductive nose teases with its rich aromas of chocolate, wild cherries and blackberries; there are also well integrated touches of vanilla liquorice, black pepper and leather. The well balanced, fantAstically intense palate is fresh and laden with juicy fruit; spice and mocha then linger on the finish with the gloriously ripe tannins.
