Description

Hailing from the Curico Valley south of Santiago with the vineyards at an altitude of 200m. Ripening fruit is not difficult here and the resulting wine is superb.

The new vintage just arrived with us last week and it is lovely. The rich dark berry flavours are fresher and intense with a velvety smooth texture. The best bit about this wine is the way the finish lingers with flavours of chocolate – like Lindt chocolate even.

This is a very easy drinking wine but has plenty of versatility with food matching; ideal with roast lamb and ratatouille or a ripe creamy cheese

- John's wine of the week 17 11 17

Slightly spicy, round & smooth character. Carmenere's popularity is on the up for sure. Bit like Merlot with knobs on? Raspberry, chocolate, menthol and great smoky undertones.
