Carmenere

Flavor of ripe fruit and fresh aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants mixed with spicy notes and hints of vanilla and tobacco. This wine has quite the personality!

Variety:

95% Carménère, 5% Syrah

Origin:

Central Valley.

Vinification:

Once the grapes arrive at the winery, a cold maceration (11°C) is carried out for 12 hours, after which alcoholic fermentation occurs under controlled temperatures (under 28°C).
Pumpovers take place 3 to 4 times per day with an aim to produce a deeply colored wine that retains the fruity character of the grape. Before the fermentation is finished, the grape must is separated from the skins. The whole process was conceived to produce wines with high fruit intensity and smoothness on the palate.

Tasting Notes

Fresh aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant. Melded with spicy notes of tobacco and hints of vanilla.

Ideally paired with spicy food such as Mexican or Thai, as well as game meats, pork, duck and cheese.
