Carmenère, a Chilean speciality, is practically non-existent in the rest of the world. Vina casablanca's comes from Pichidegua, 87 miles south of Santiago in the Rapel Valley. A broad annual temperature range and the absence of rain during the harvest season allows the grapes to reach their peak maturity, which is essential for this variety.
This wine's fresh berry aromas blend perfectly with the sweet notes of toffee, cinnamon, and coconut from the oak. On the palate, it displays good body, structure, and soft, round tannins, making it a complex wine with a long finish.
"This is a judicious meld of tension, integrated oak and impeccably ripe cassis and blueberry fruit flavours, nudged with violets and cinnamon. The palate is dense, juicy, full-flavoured, fine and very long. A smooth giant." Gold Medal, 95 points, Decanter Asia Wine Awards (2017 vintage)
