This Carmenere is sourced from our vineyards located on the coastal mountain range of the Colchagua Valley. Benefiting from a strong maritime influence, this is a very unique Carmenere, as it offers both a refreshing elegance and character.
The constant breezes off the Pacific Ocean cool the grapes, slowly maturing the intense aromas of dark fruit and spice. Grapes were picked at maximum of maturity to maintain all of the aromatic potential. Together with the soft texture and intense flavors on the palate, this wine is a perfect expression of Carmenere from the coast of Chile.
About the Vineyard
The grapes for this wine come from Colchagua’s coastal dryland (secano), specifically from the sector of Lolol. The vineyards are planted on the slopes of the region’s soft hills, on soils of low fertility. The coastal influence that penetrates each morning in form of winds and humidity to the valley allows for a slow ripening of the grapes, achieving in
this way a very good varietal version of Carmenere.
This is a very elegant and fruity Carmenere that offers a combination of red and black fruits, with no herbal notes but a great
freshness, which makes it a wine with lots of aromas and full of life. It feels vibrant on the palate, with a good concentration, balance and great volume. Its tannins are big and round, and it offers a persistent ending with great structure.
