If you haven’t tried Carmenère before, its fruit-driven character is often compared to Merlot. Originating in Bordeaux, it struggled to recover after nearly being eradicated in the late 19th century by a vine root-eating bug called phylloxera. Luckily, cuttings had got muddled up with Merlot and taken to Chile by unsuspecting winemakers. It flourished in the warm Central Valley region and as recently the 1990s, nearly half of the country’s ‘Merlot’ was confirmed as Carmenère. The late-ripening Carmenère loves the sun and is now synonymous with Chile. Ours is made by our partners at Ventisquero Wine Estates, who truly capture the character of the grape and region. Our wine team couldn’t resist adding this to our range.

Description

Our Carmenère hails from Chile, where the grape produces medium-bodied reds loved for their berried fruit flavour and herbaceous notes. Carmenère’s appeal is its versatility, being juicy enough to enjoy on its own as well as fabulously flexible with food.

How does it taste

Our Carmenère is deep cherry-red in colour. Aromas and flavours of blueberries, blackberries and strawberries, blend effortlessly with spice and hints of chocolate and vanilla. It is smooth and well-balanced, with velvety tannins and a long chocolatey finish.

Best Carmenere for a while

Love this wine. A recommendation from Victoria Moore in the Telegraph a couple of weeks back. A great choice at a good price. If still in stock I’ll be back for more.

mr

Very good sample of the grape. Not too " jammy" ; I shall use it in my next tasting of Wenhaston Tasting Group. Good barbecue wine withoue being too heavy.
