In the early 1800s, the first Chilean winemakers brought a number of Carmenère vines to the country from Bordeaux and planted them across Chile. Nowadays, this grape variety is rarely found anywhere else in the world, and Carmenère is considered a distinctly Chilean wine.
Tasting notes:
With notes of black and red fruit, this Carmenère has a strong flavor and is typical of the grape variety. It has a spiced and earthy bouquet with hints of black pepper, tobacco and chocolate. Subtle notes of vanilla and roasted almonds are perceptible, thanks to the oak used during aging. There are spicy and fruity flavors on the palate which combine perfectly with the oak and the smooth and sweet tannins.
