Deep violet red. An intense, pure Carmenère, packed with blueberries and wild berries. Floral hints like violets and a pinch of roast red pepper. Fruity and flavourful with delicious acidity, sweet, friendly tannins and a long, creamy finish.
Denomination of Origin
Peumo Vineyard, D.O. Peumo, Cachapoal Valley
The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m a.s.l. and extends over terraces and hills of the Coastal Range along the Cachapoal River. The vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock and are trellised to vertical shoot position. The soils are deep and have a top layer of clay that retains moisture, which helps control plant vigor and growth, and more importantly, allows the vines to remain active until late May, when Carmenere is harvested.
Mediterranean, with an average of 19ºC difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures and a strong influence of the Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel.
The wine is aged for 12 months; 96% in French oak barrels (29% new and 71% second- and third-use) and 4% in foudres.
Deep alluvial silty-clay associated with the riverbed.
