Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Intense ruby red in colour. Aromas of black fruits and spices from the Carmenere predominate on the nose and are accompanied by an herbal note characteristic of the Cabernet Franc. The palate shows a good combination of tannic structure from the Cabernet Franc. The palate shows a good combination of tannic structure from the Cabernet Franc and smoothness from the Carmenere to deliver a sensation of the juiciness and freshness with a very elegant finish.
Production Notes
The 2013-2014 season will go down in history as a cold vintage. A series of multiple-day spring frosts in the second half of September had serious consequences on yields, not only in Maule, but throughout the country. Induction and fruit differentiation were seriously affected, and yields were reduced in all red varieties. Temperatures were cool from budbreak through veraison (September 2013-January 2014), which slowed the phonological progress of the plants. The situation changed in the second half of the season (January through March), and higher heat, in conjunction with lower crop loads, allowed the plants to recover from the phonological delay. Finally, harvest was pushed back by approximately two weeks, and the resulting wines have more moderated alcohol levels, higher acidities, and overall fresh fruit characteristics.
Food Pairing Notes
Excellent with lean meats.
