Gran Reserva Carmenere 2011

The grapes for this wine come from the Maule Valley,  located at the foot of the Andes mountains in the Southern part of the Central Valley. This Carmenere is an expression of the terroir. The grapes were harvested in April with a complete level of maturity to show all their aromatic potential. The wine was aged in oak barrels and stainless steel tanks for 12 months. 

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in color, this wine shows ripe aromas of blackberry, plum, fig and dates. On the palate, it has a rich and velvety mouthfeel and notes of voluptuous dark fruit--a wine of superb balance!

Food Pairing

Pair with peppered steak, leg of lamb with mint sauce, or paella a la Valenciana.
