Tasting notes

Deep ruby in colour with violet hues, this Carmenère opens with intense aromas of plum, cherry, and cassis mixed with sweet spice and dark chocolate. On the palate, the toasted flavours from the oak are balanced and well-integrated. The vibrant fruit core gives way to silky tannins and a well-structured body, without loss of elegance.

Vintage information

The 2021 vintage saw a relatively dry winter followed by much needed rainfall in early spring, replenishing water reserves. Bud break and fruit set occurred on time avoiding spring frosts but summer and veraison brought significant rain in central Chile. This presented a series of challenge requiring careful vine-management to maintain ventilation and avoid the development of fungal disease, deft management resulted in development of healthy, high-quality fruit. A cool, dry autumn allowed a gradual harvest of grapes at their ideal ripeness.
