Tasting Notes

Undoubtedly a very challenging 2020 season, presenting the driest winter of the last 50 years. The vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley had to endure an intense hydric marathon to accomplish ripeness. Warm temperatures, especially in springtime, ended the season with a slightly colder March and April. Moderate crop yield and abundant irrigation in summer helped maintain the freshness and quality of the vines.

Color

Intense purple colour with violet hues.

Aroma

The nose unfolds aromas of black and red fruits with spicy notes that recall paprika and black pepper, all framed by soft touches of bitter chocolate.

Palate

The palate presents notes of cherry and strawberry, black pepper and a touch of black tea. It is a wine with a fresh, round, soft palate with elegant tannins that give it a silky texture.

A complex wine with soft tannins is the ideal pairing for white meats, like the one presented here. The chicken, which was cooked in the same wine, share many similarities with the Carmenere, and it becomes an extension of its flavors. The quinoa provides earthy tastes combined with the wine´s oak, and the vegetables add freshness to the preparation. This Carmenere has a silky texture, very friendly on the palate.
