Santa Carolina Reserva Carmenere
A deep, rich and complex wine with dark plum fruit flavours, cassis, currants and hints of spice on the long finish.
The grapes were grown in the La Rinconada vineyards in the Cachapoal Valley, close to the Cachapoal River, which receives a large amount of rain during the short winter months and has long summers of cool breezes and sunshine. Temperatures vary greatly from warm days to cool nights which allow the grapes to ripen slowly to maintain natural acidity and develop complex flavours.
The wine was then aged for eight months in French oak barrels before being bottled. This wine suits red meats, spicy sauces particularly curries and mature cheeses.

Through the journey of the valleys, Santa Carolina respects each varietals typicity and treasures the expression of fruit. The estates, owned and managed by Santa Carolina, are located in Maipo, Rapel, Leyda, Casablanca and Colchagua.
