The Details

In a Nutshell

Structured and grippy Carménère - the latest and best evolution of the style that put this variety on the map.

Tasting Notes

Rich cherry fruit, hints of capsicum, clove and black pepper on the nose with a palate of smooth berry fruit, robust and full-bodied with ripe well-balanced tannins and a refreshing sappy flavour to the finish.

Production Notes

The climate of the Colchagua Valley is Mediterranean. Summers are hot but with cool night temperatures. The soils here are alluvial with good drainage.

The grapes were hand picked in late April and underwent a week long pre fermentation cold treatment at 8ºC to extract more fruit character. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally and 20% of the wine was aged in French oak for 6 months.

Producer - Emiliana

With prime vineyards in Casablanca, Maipo, Rapel and Bio-Bio and access to the newest and best clones in Chile (through Jose Guilisasti, brother of Emiliana’s General Manager Rafael who runs Chile’s foremost nursery) Emiliana is a very substantial and impressive organisation. Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine of which 923ha are IMO and Demeter certified organic.
