Recommended - Decanter Wine Awards 2010 Pioneering, energetic, cosmopolitan, elegant, innovative and contemporary, Vina Carmen was the first producer in Chile to specialize 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 : Carmenere 95%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Region : Chile / Colchagua Maker : Sebastian Labbe Notes : Intense red fruit character on the nose with hints of toasted tobacco, cedar and oak. Full bodied with lovely balance and a deep, velvety texture with beautiful length. Serve : Serve this wine with Filet Mignon, roast prime rib, roast duck, rabbit, lamb cutlets, meatballs, ratatouille, kebab, rich pasta dishes and cheeses such as Gruyère, Manchego, Parmesan, Cantal, Cheddar. ABV : 14%


Winemaker's Notes:

"In 1994, an ampelographer visiting the Carmen winery discovered that the grape all of Chile thought was Merlot was Carménère, a nearly extinct grape from Bordeaux. Marked by soft tannins and a nose of earth and spice, Gran Reserva is the winery's top Carménère, produced from its very best vineyards." - Wall Street Journal
