Single Estate / Carmenère
The fruit for this wine comes from our Romeral property in the Maipo Valley, which is renowned for its very high quality red wines. The clay-loam soils of alluvial origin and the cool, dry climate endow the terroir with ideal characteristics for well-structured and highly persistent red wines. The vineyard was planted to high density (10,100 plants/hectare) in order to yield 1 kg of grapes per plant and obtain tremendously concentrated wines of maximum quality.
After harvest the grapes are crushed and undergo a 3-day pre-fermentation cold maceration to encourage fruity aromas and increase the intensity of the color in the wine. Fermentation takes place at 26°-28°C to extract silky tannins.
After malolactic fermentation the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels of varying uses. It is then bottled and allowed to evolve for another 6 months prior to its release to market.
Of beautiful violet-red color
this Carmenère offers on the nose intense aromas of black fruits with spicy and herbal touches.
With a good body, it feels fresh on the palate, with well-defined notes of red fruits and a touch of white pepper.
