Casas Patronales Reserva Carmenere
Varietal Composition: 100% Carménère.
Geographic Area: San Clemente, Maule Valley.
Winemaking: The grapes, of our own production, were selected and harvested by hand. Prior to fermentation, a cold maceration took place over eight days. This was followed by fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 27ºC. 40% of this wine was then aged for six months in French and American oak barrels.
Winemaker’s Comments: This wine is a deep purple-red color and has aromas of fresh black fruit, cherries, black pepper and chocolate. On the palate, it is well-structured with very smooth tannins. This is a fresh wine with notes of black plums, tobacco and a smooth toasted undertone that combines with the fruit on the finish.
Food Pairings: This wine pairs well with pasta, white meat, mature cheese and Chinese food.
Cellaring Recommendations: Three to four years.
Format Types: 750 ml
