Intense and fruity this wine has fresh aromas of mulberry and strawberry that mingle with jammy flavours and roasted red pepper notes. Velvety and smooth, it has a full bodied palate and a really tasty finish! Vina Echeverria is a long established Chilean family owned and managed Estate, producing high quality wines. Their 75 hectares of vineyards, in one single block, and their state-of-art winery are located on the outskirts of the town of Molina in the Curicó Valley, 200Km south of Santiago. Vina Echeverria only make wine from their estate grown grapes, all of which originate from ungrafted select clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%), Chardonnay (20%) and Merlot (2%). High priority is given to care in the vineyards and canopy management to control vegetative growth. Exposure to sunlight and air movement on the leaves are maximised, leading to almost organic viticulture with the minimum use of agrochemical products. All members of the Echeverria family are involved at the winery making an unbeatable team, bonded together by the strongest forces of all: deep family roots, a shared passion for winemaking, an uncompromising search of excellence and a total commitment to their customers' satisfaction. Grapes: 100% Carménère Harvest: May Soil: Loam and clay soil, medium to low fertility, well drained gravely subsoil. Vinification: The bunches are harvested by hand and carried to the winery in 18 Kg. boxes. Fermented in 30,000 litre oak tanks for 8 days at 24-27o C to dryness. Extended maceration for an additional 5 to 8 days. 100% malolactic fermentation. Alc :14%, R/s 1.9 g/l Colour: Deep violet-red. Serve: Serve between 15o and 18o C with grilled meats and cheese. Taste: Round and well balanced with a great concentration of berries and spices and a long finish.
