Reserva Carménère

Carménère


Winemaker’s Notes

In 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 color, full of fresh fruit, highly concentrated and with mature tannins, delivering a well-balanced palate.

The grapes, of our own production, were selected and harvested by hand. Prior to fermentation, a cold maceration took place over eight days.This was followed by fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 27ºC. 40% of this wine was then aged for six months in French and American oak barrels.

Cellaring Recommendations: Three to four years

Description

This wine is a deep purple-red colour and has aromas of fresh black fruit, cherries, black pepper and chocolate. On the palate, it is well-structured with very smooth tannins. This is a fresh wine with notes of black plums, tobacco and a smooth toasted undertone that combines with the fruit on the finish.

Serving Suggestion

This wine pairs well with pasta, white meta, mature cheese and Chinese food.
