External Reviews for Santa Rita Carmenere Reserva
This rich, ripe Merlot comes from 20 year old vineyards in Chile's cool Lontue Valley. The wine has a deep ruby color, with plummy fruit and spice flavors and a smooth, velvety finish.
Eucalyptus and tobacco flavors give this wine a distinctive personality but dominate the light cherry flavors. Firm tannins allow it to stand up to grilled meats. Best from 2000 through 2003.
Pleasant mix of red and black berry fruit, with noticeable herb hints as well. Slightly firm on the finish for a Merlot, but good character. Drink now.
Smoke, herbal and plum aromas lead into a light-bodied, graceful Merlot that sports crushed raspberry followed by easy tannins on the finish. Drink now.
Weedy and herbal, but there are also black cherries and mocha on the nose and bitter chocolate and coffee on the palate. Finishes with toffee, smoke and herbs, offering surprising complexity in a wine of this genre.
Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile’s premier wine estates. Founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernandez in Chile’s Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile. In 1980, it was acquired by its late owner, Ricardo Claro, under whom Santa Rita has reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile’s most successful and innovative estates. The dynamic Reserva Series has a well-structured, fruity and youthful style, perfect for any occasion. The winemaker’s objective is to create wines that optimally reflect the typical characteristics of each variety, both in aromas and flavors. At the same time, these wines are elegant and delicately balanced with a complex structure, high concentration and round, long-lasting expression. Production Area Maipo Valley, Chile Grape Varieties 100% Syrah Vinification Partially crushed grapes are cold-macerated before fermentation for 5 days at a temperature below 41°F. Fermentation is carried out at 77°F with selected yeasts, followed by a 10-day maceration period. The wine is aged for 12-14 months in French and American oak barrels. Color Deep ruby Bouquet Lively aromas of violets, sweet tobacco and juicy blackberries, delicately balanced by a delightful hint of oak Taste Bold, supple black fruit flavors perfectly combined with ripe, smooth tannins and a well rounded, medium body Alcohol 13.8% Serving Suggestions Ideal served with red meats, pastas and cheeses.
Klare rubinrote Farbe. Im Bukett finden Sie reife rote Früchte und Pflaumen, verbunden mit einer Nuance Vanille. Er hat einen mittleren Körper und eine feine Struktur.
This deep, ruby red colored wine has a medium body, good concentration, fine balance and ripe tannins. Its intense fruit aroma is dominated by violets, tobacco and blackberries wonderfully highlighted by oak notes.
Soft yellow with slight green hues. Tropical notes of mango and pineapples. Pleasant acidity provides an elegant , lingering persistency, with a bit of butter on the edges.
