The palate is smooth and vibrant, with creamy textures lending weight to the firm, ripe, tannins.
Pioneering, energetic, cosmopolitan, elegant, innovative and contemporary, Vina Carmen was the first producer in Chile to specialise in organic grapes. They were responsible for identifying Carmenere, which had previously been thought of as Merlot.
They were among the first to produce – to acclaim – premium Chilean wines. From the winery in the Maipo Valley, and using primary fruit from that area, as well as carefully-sited vineyards in Rapel, Casablanca and Curico, Carmen have produced a series of fruit-driven wines, stylish both in taste and look, which are stunning in their intensity and purity of their aromas.
Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Chile / Maipo / Maipo Alto
Maker: Sebastian Labbe
Notes: Deep purple-red colour. The nose is dense and lush, with cassis, blackcurrant, and cigar box aromas. Cherries, graphite, and black truffles lend another dimension. The palate is smooth and vibrant, with creamy textures lending weight to the firm, ripe, tannins. The finish is long and elegant.
Serve: Enjoy with steak or strongly flavoured cheeses.
