Estate Reserva Carmenère 2023 6x75cl

Aconcagua Valley

Ruby-red colour with a high layer of violet hints, the nose displays red pepper notes, with some sweet tones reminiscent of figs and cranberry, all framed by toasted notes and some clove. The palate is spicy, with notes of black fruits, figs, graphite and red pepper. A wine whose structure and texture highlight the typical appearance of the variety with fine-grained tannins, with a very smooth and pleasant palate.

Vineyards

The grapes for our Estate Carmenere were selected from our vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley. The Mediterranean climate in this zone features moderately warm summer days and fresh evening breezes. The high daytime-night time temperature oscillation in the weeks leading up to the harvest triggers high concentrations of polyphenols, intensifying the colour of the wine.

Winemaking

Grapes were harvested by the end of April and transported to the winery, where they were crushed and deposited in stainless steel tanks for their fermentation. 70% of the wine was aged for seven months in French oak barrels to allow rounder tannins and a good texture on the palate. Once the final blend was completed, it was stabilized and filtered before bottling.
