In Stock Now!

Carmenère, a Bordeaux grape related to Cabernet Franc, is much more successful in the heat of Chile than it in its home in south-west France. (Where once it was a significant component in Bordeaux it is now an also-ran there). This is a juicy wine, a pleasant cocktail of redcurrant, blackberry and raspberry, with the merest hint of the tobacco / nicotine notes which mark the grape. The Gran Verano wines are made at Vina Apaltagua from their own estate grown grapes. Drink this year.
