Hacienda Araucano Carmenere Reserva 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little sweet oak greets the nose followed by some dark herbal and African violet aromas all layered over forest berry wild fruits, wild strawberries and blackberries. Rather light bodied and scid driven with just a suggestion of tannin supporting a nice core of blackberry and black currant fruit that shows a little oaky bitterness on the backend. Fresh, clean and easy drinking with more fruit than herb on the palate and some drying wood tannin emerging on the modest finish. 83pts

Hacienda Araucano:
These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years.  The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity
