92 points for Terrunyo Carmenere 2010 in Wine Enthusiast


Terrunyo Carmenere, made by winemaker Ignacio Recabarren, was Chile’s fi­rst ultra-premium Carmenere and is a benchmark for the country’s wine industry. Since its fi­rst vintage in 1998, it has received the highest accolades from world’s specialized critics.

Wine Enthusiast has awarded each of its 10 vintages 90 or more points, a distinction added to many others the wine earned over the course of its history, making this an outstanding example of Chilean Carmenere and positioning Peumo, in the Cachapoal Valley, as the best Chilean terroir for the production of this outstanding grape.

“Mossy, lightly herbal aromas of blackberry and marzipan are attractive. This is rich and racy in the mouth, with vanilla, tobacco, plum and berry ­avors that ‑nish long and ride elegantly on a beam of slightly sharp acidity. Drink this ‑ne Carmenere though 2016.” Michael Schachner.
