General description

Variety / Style

  • 99% Carmenere
  • 1% Cabernet Sauvignon

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

  • Block 27, Peumo Vineyard, D.O. Peumo, Cachapoal Valley.

Vineyard

The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m above sea level and extends across the rolling hills along the Cachapoal River on the terraces of the Coastal Mountain Range. e vertically positioned and cordon-pruned vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock. e deep soils have a top layer of clay that enables them to retain moisture and allows the vines to remain active until the harvest in late May. It also helps control plant vigor and growth.

Soil

Deep alluvial riverbench associated soils with a silty-clay texture.

Climate

The microclimate in the Peumo Vineyard is highly infuenced by the Rapel River and Lake. This season began with a cold spring with frosts, but was followed by a warm summer. The weather remained dry throughout the harvest season, and that, along with the microclimate and infuence of the Rapel River and Lake, allowed grapes to ripen a few days earlier than in a normal year.

AGING

9 months in French oak barrels.

"Ignacio Recabarren selects Terrunyo from a terrace on the north bank of the Rapel River, blending it with 14 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from old vines on a high terrace above the Maipo River in Pirque. His 2011 is filled with flavors of blueberries and red plums, integrating the spice and herb notes of the variety into delicate details over the fruit. Firm and muscular, the wine is shaped by the unusually cold vintage in Peumo, which provides an acidity that practically vibrates over the tongue. Cellar it to eventually decant for braised lamb."

"A rich and well-sculpted red, bursting with fresh ¬avors of dark plum, cherry tart and dried blackberry. Asian spice notes fill in midpalate. The complex finish balances savory and dark chocolate notes."
