Carmenere – Cinsault | 2017
Color: Dark purple.
Harvest notes: Along the 2016-2017 growing season, the maximum and minimum temperatures were higher than the historic records. Scarce precipitations registered in winter, caused an acceleration in the ripening process that led to start harvest two to four weeks in advance with regard to the normal dates. Generally speaking, yields were lower than expected, but grapes were healthy and showed a good concentration.
Tasting notes: In the glass, this wine shows a dark purple colour of great concentration. Very clean on the nose, it offers the delicious classical expression of the variety, with notes of black cherries, hints of roasted bell-pepper and dried herbs, and an additional earthy touch. On the palate it unfolds a good and mouth-filling volume, as well as a precise balance between its toasted notes and those of black chocolate, all harmonised with an expression of ripe black fruits and a pleasant acidity.
Recommended serving temperature:
between 15 and 18˚ C
