"This exceptional vineyard was planted by winemaker Gabriel Edwards’ grandmother. The resulting wine is subtle, grassy and wonderfully aromatic, mid-way between a Carmenère and Cabernet Franc in style: balanced and smooth with filigree tannins. 2018-24"

Product Description:

The 2016´s vintage is made 100% from our Almahue's Carmenere. Among our vines, we have discovered few samples of other varieties, especially Malbec and Cabernet Franc. These random vines give our wines a unique complexity and identity. The wine is aged for 12 months in: 50% of the wine in 7,000 liters foudre of different uses, 46% in 225 and 300 liters french oak barrels of different uses, and the remaining 6% is aged in new 600 liters Sylvain french oak barrels. The Fermentation process is made with indigenous yeast. This wine is stabilized naturally thanks to the cold winter weather, without using any chemical products. Tasting Notes: Elegant and powerful wine fulfilled with red fruit, full of species, delicious in its freshness, vivid and intense.. It also shows some leafy rich finish that are proper from the Carménčre. Its ending is long and opulent with a creamy, black chocolate and tobacco touches.
