Description

"It is delightfully fragrant on the nose showing dark plum, blueberry, dried herb and toasted almond characters, leading to a nicely fruited palate that is supple and succulent. The wine offers youthful fruit intensity as well as subtle savoury undertones, finishing lingering and delicately dry. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Apr 2017

A deep dark ruby red in colour, this wine has great concentration and personality. The nose is lush with blackcurrants, pencil lead, cherries and a soft hint of cedar. This Cabernet Sauvignon is vibrant and penetrating, with fine-grained tannins that are firm yet silky in texture, leading to balance and finesse in the finish.

Carmen Premier 1850 is a contemporary brand that pays tribute to Viña Carmen, Chile’s first winery. Experience and knowledge are reflected in modern wines characterized by their purity and the intensity of their fruit.

The grapes were handpicked from our own vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Our vineyards are managed to yield an average of 10 ton/ha. A 10 day cold maceration was carried out to maximize the extraction of primary fruit aromas and colour. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 26º C with a gentle extraction programme. Total skin contact was 35 days. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in barrels and tanks, with 80% of the wine aged in French oak barrels for 10 months and 20% remaining in tanks. After bottling, the wine aged for an additional 2 months prior to its release.

Food Pairing: Ideal with roast beef and steak, hearty casseroles, stews and all kinds of cheeses.
