Leslie Lee's Picks
Carmen Carmenere hails from the Apalta Valley, one of Chile’s finest terroirs. Once mistaken for Merlot this little grape originated in Southwest Bordeaux but finds its best expression in Chile.
The Carmenere grape has an intense, dark purple colour in the glass. The nose has lots of ripe berries (blackberry, cherry and plum) with a touch of tobacco and pepper. The palate has lots of smooth velvety tannins, lower acidity and a wonderful finish after aging 14 months in French oak.
Try this lesser known, medium bodied wine with any grilled meats or savoury pastas dishes!View Product
