Description

The wine is 85% Carmenere, 15% Merlot and hails from the Colchagua Valley, the heartland of Carmenère. Grapes are hand harvested, and the wine was oaked in a measured way (75% oaked, 25% unoaked; for the oaked portion: 80% French oak, 20% American oak; 25% of oak was new; oaking lasted 5 months) to impart complexity without loss of the distinctive Carmenère flavours and fruit.

Deep purple / red in colour with a full bouquet of spice, oak and black fruit and a firm but juicy palate. Offers plum, damson and curranty characters alongside well-integrated toasty oak and layers of vanilla. Excellent, very affordable example of Carmenère.

Made in Colchagua Valley, Chile.
