Carmen Gewurztraminer Reserva Casablanca

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

The grapes were handpicked from our estate vineyards in Casablanca Valley, the Pacific Ocean influence over the vineyards helps to reach ripeness slowly accumulating great acidity and freshness. The grapes were carefully selected before crushing. Once crushed the grapes were cold macerated in the press for 10 hours, after this cold maceration the grapes were gently pressed. The juice was clarified at low temperatures and racked for alcoholic fermentation carrying its fine lees. The clear juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts, between 12° C and 13° C. The wine is gently clarified and filtered. Bottle young to preserve its great freshness and aromatic potential. This wine shows a greenish yellow colour. Fully aromatic on the nose this wine is rich and crispy with mandarin and orange peel aromas, intense roses, melon, mango lychee and Turkish delight. The mouth is fresh and complex, mineral tones add a vibrant edge. The wine is rich and soft with a persistent long finish. Grapes : 100% Gewürztraminer Region : Chile / Casablanca Valley Maker : Sebastian Labbe Notes : Wonderfully full aroma on the nose of orange peel and mandarin, mango, lychees,melon and Turkish delight. A fresh and complex palate with mineral notes adding a fresh, vibrant edge. A lovely rich, yet soft wine with a long finish. Serve : Seafood and fish with seasoning sauces as well as Asian spiced cuisine. Matches perfectly with sweet desserts. ABV : 13.5 % vol.
