Medium Weight Reds

High temperatures mixed with high tannins and high alcohol is not a preferred combinatiion in the summer months, but there is hope to be found in medium-weight reds.

Stick with something medium-bodied with moderate alcohol and softer tannins and you’ll be set to pair these wines with late summer and autumn fare. Hit the barbie with a few steaks tand pair them with Carmenere. The slightly herbal-toned fruit flavors love grilled beef and at their best these are quintessential medium-bodied wines.

Two to Try:

Oveja Negra Single Vineyard Carmenere

Oveja Negra is a great introduction to Carmenere for those looking for a more modern styled wine full of blue and black fruits.

Apaltagua Reserva Carmenere Colchagua Valley

For a more classic example of Carmenere replete with herbal and vegetal accents to black and red fruits, check out this Apaltagua.
