Don David is the reserve range of Michel Torino made up from the best grape selection. The aim in the vineyard is to gain concentration and to maximise fruit extraction. To obtain concentration and balance only vines older than 20 years are harvested. The harvest is manual, putting clusters in small 22 kg boxes. Pre-fermentation macerations takes place over 3 days at 5° C. Intense works is done during fermentation to gain good structure using 85% of selected yeasts. Post fermentations are handled up to a maximum of 30 days. After spontaneous malolactic fermentation, 70% of the wine is aged in small barrels of both American (40%) and French (60%) Oak for 12 months.
 
Beautiful reserve Syrah from the Michel Torino reserve range of Don David. This wine is all about intensity. The colour is crimson red, profound with purple borders. The aroma is full of spicy notes, cassis and clove. Vanilla aromas persist at the end. A fruity mouth, full of cassis with round and sweet tannins. The barrel spell contributes with warming vanilla notes.

Excellent value for money. Great change from the Aussie Shiraz and somewhere in the in-between territory of Aussie Shiraz style and NZ Syrah style. Give this one a go, no disappointments to be had here

I can see why this Syrah from the Michel Torino has won a gold medal. Lovely reserve wine from Argentina and not sure how they do them this cheap! Deep red and purple in colour with Blackberry and plum flavours and a hint of vanilla in the well structured tannins. We had this with meat loaf and it matched well. 91/100 IMHO.

Absolutely loved this wine, particularly for the price. Intense and fruity on the nose, full and rounded with the perfect balance ripe berry on the front and mid palate and spice and savoury pepper on the finish.
