Reserva Privada Carménère


Winemaker’s Notes

n the Maule Valley, terroirs with a high percentage of clay determine the mineral character of our wines. The cold evening breezes from the Andes mountains caress our vineyards, causing extreme fluctuations in temperature. The resulting wines are intense in colour, full of fresh fruit, highly concentrated and with mature tannins, delivering a well-balanced palate. The grapes, of our own production, were selected and manually harvested, then subjected to a cold maceration for twelve days. This was followed by fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 27ºC. The wine was then subject to malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels where the wine was aged for twelve months. Cellaring Recommendations: Five to six years
