4 stars - Sam Kim Wine orbit
"Attractively fruited and fragrant, showing dark plum, mint, anise and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a juicy palate thats refreshing and supple. Approachable and easy to enjoy. At its best: now to 2022." (2019 vintage)

Carmenere - recognised as Chile's own red varietal, and this is a stonkingly fine example of this Merlot-esque grape.

The grapes come from Chile's winegrowing heartland - the Central Valley, and are expertly managed to enhance the fruit characteristics of each individual grape variety. A Carmenere which is high intensity ruby red and bright in color. On the nose it is expressive and intense, distinguished with notes of blackberry, plum, and black pepper. On the palate these aromas mix with notes of vanilla, coffee and chocolate from careful oak aging. Fresh and persistent finish.
