Viña Carmen Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Reserve 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were hand harvested from Rapel Valley known for its alluvial soils and summers with high day temperatures and fresh nights, ideal for Carmenère. The bunches were crushed and macerated for 15 days at 3ºC to obtain colour and fruitiness. After that, a 15 day fermentation was made in stainless steel tanks at 28ºC. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in stainless steel tanks. 30% of the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for a period of 6 months. Finally, barrel and tank wines were blended, fined and bottled A nice deep ruby colour, starts with intense aromas of ripe red fruits, rhubarb, chocolate and pepper. Soft and velvety tannins in the mouth; jammy ripe red fruits, a hint of mint and spicy flavours. A nice balance, rich and a long aftertaste. Alcohol Content 13.9 % Vol Total Acidity 3.19 g/l Sugar 2.29 g/l PH 3,71
