Gran Reserva Serie Riberas Carmenere 2018

Deep, dark red in color with lush aromas of cherries, blackcurrant, and blackberry with a touch of black and white pepper. Tight and focused with deeply concentrated flavors and an almost silky texture with soft, smooth tannins that come to the fore at the beginning of the long finish.

Vineyard

The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m above sea level and extends along the Cachapoal River and the terraces and hills of the Coastal Mountains. The vines are from a pre-phylloxera field selection and are vertically positioned. The soils are deep and able to retain water due to a top layer of clay. This helps control vine vigor and growth and allows the vines to remain active until harvest at the end of May.

Soil

Alluvial in origin. Deep silty-clay texture.

Climate

Mediterranean, with an extended dry season. The temperatures are warm during the day and temperate at night without extremes. They are influenced by the Cachapoal River and Rapel Lake.

AGING

10 months in barrels (80% French and 20% American) and 5.000 lts. casks.

"Olive, spice and black-plum aromas come with some grit and savory accents. This is well packed and voluminous; flavors of olive, plum and wild berry finish sturdy and smooth, with minty accents. For a good introduction to the positives of Carmenère, try this."
