Carmenere has become a signature grape from Chile and really excels in the Colchagua Valley. Almost half of this wine was aged for 9 months in French oak. You’ll find notes of red fruits, blueberries and plums on the nose with fresh complex flavours on the palate which belie its price. You may enjoy it now or cellar for the next 5 or 6 years.
