Pétreo Carmenère 2017

  • 75cl bottle

This special carmenere is both intense and surprising. Its aromatic palette is very different from the one normally exhibited by this variety. It all comes from the special terroir of the rocky slope where its vines are grown. Its bouquet is completed with pleasant and fruity aromas of sour cherries and blueberries. It is juicy, bracing and sanguineous. Filled with fruitiness, with a medium yet deep structure, the unique texture of its tannins makes this wine an outspoken and elegant one, which gradually shows its whole personality as it's being served.

Vineyards

Colluvial in its origin and granitic with ferric rock alteration and schist of sedimentary-clay incrustations.

Vintage

The 2017 vintage gave sophisticated wines with a beautiful balance of fruit concentration, structure and depth mainly due to the season’s particularly low yields. Notably healthy conditions in the vines and bright acidity helped to preserve the fresh fruit style of winemaking, allowing for remarkable concentration and structure and lively fruit flavours.

Winemaking

100% barrel fermentation using native yeasts 100% aged for 18 months 100% in barrels of second and third use
