Via’s definition of Black Sheep is someone special and out of the ordinary, someone who attracts attention, who captivates, and has character and personality. Step forward: Oveja Negra! Via’s first harvest was as recent as 2002 from a new winery at Talca and this is very definitely a “Can Do” operation producing wines with attitude. Winemaker Edgard Carter seeks to combine sustainable viticultural practices with innovative winemaking, to produce fruitdriven wines of real character. “Sustainability, expression of terroir, and quality are key. The aim is to deliver wines with superior quality, at fair prices, made in harmony with nature"". Individual wines for individual people.
Editorial Reviews for Oveja Negra Single Vineyard Carmenère
Perfumy oak, some nice eucalyptus edge, blueberry. A little Brett, though supposedly not brett and actually character of the cooler climate Carmenere. Leather, animal, red currant. Spicy on the nose, a touch black. Crisp, well focused and almost a bit lean but with plenty of richness emerging on the mid-palate. Spicy, minty and a bit oaky on the short finish. Bit of sweetness, bit of sweet black licorice, vanilla finale. Crisp and a little candied on the finale, easy, spicy, blueberryish fruit. 88pts
Food Pairings for Oveja Negra Single Vineyard Carmenère
This wine shows a seductive and complex combination of black cherry and raspberry aromas, rose petals and violets, mingled with a soft touch of vanilla and coconut. Full-bodied and rich, with a soft and velvety texture. Smooth tannins and an elegant aftertaste.
