This is an incredible-value Carménère, so make sure to pick up a few bottles! Cassis, plum, vanilla, cocoa and mint are all in play. Lengthy with a fruit-driven personality and suave tannins. Perfect for red sauce dishes!
Bordeaux has virtually abandoned the Carménère grape, but it flourishes in Chile where they produce it as a single variety or blend it with Cabernet Sauvignon. This Carménère has about 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The wine is dense purple in colour with a cedary, blackcurrant nose. It’s full-bodied, dry with a fruity blackcurrant flavour, good length with a note of cinnamon on the finish.
This wine has spent 14 months in French oak. Dense purple in colour with a spicy bouquet of leather and blackcurrants with light oak notes; medium-bodied, dry, well-extracted fruit; firmly structured with balanced acidity.
Carménère blended with 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense purple in colour with a spicy, blackcurrant, cedary nose augmented by notes of red flowers and pencil lead; medium-bodied, dry and savoury with plum, blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours; firmly structured.
A bargain Cabernet Sauvignon! It hits the palate right away with dark fruit flavours of plum, cherry and blueberry. This is followed by mint, cocoa, spice and purple flowers. Texturally, it is round, with unobtrusive tannins. Excellent length and ready to be drunk over the next 5 years.
This organic wine is a blend of 5 grapes, with Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon acting as the lead. Ripe and easy-drinking; you will find blackcurrant, cocoa, violets, bay leaf, vanilla and spice. Fullish, it has a long aftertaste.
