Sol de Chile Winemaker Selection Carménère


Winemaker Notes

Our Reserve Carménère has an intense, deep red color. Elegant and fruity, with notes of berries, ripe plums, chocolate and pepper. This balanced wine is well mixed with fruit and oak characteristics, contributing to its round and silky flavor. Perfect for fine pastes, mature cheese and poultry.

Special Characteristics

The grapes come from a special selection of 3 and 6 quarters of our finest vineyards in Villa Alegre, Maule Valley, which are specially managed and controlled to maintain a maximum performance of 6 tons per hectare (2.4 tons per acre) and high exposure of the fruit, producing a highly concentrated wine ideal for aging. Once in a stainless steel tank, it’s brought to a concentration of 20% to maximize the flavor, ripen tannins and develop color. The wine is aged about 15 months in new French oak barrels, with a production yield of 80,000 bottles.
