    Carmenere

Viña Carmen was founded by Christian Lanz in 1850 and named in honor of his beloved wife.  The winery now has more than 160 years of history marked by milestones and successes earned through its experience, enological heritage, and tireless search for quality and excellence.  

Tasting Notes

A concentrated intense dark purple color wine. Its nose is rich and very honest to the variety, showing ripe berries, sweet spices and tobacco. Soft touches of spicy anise and paprika add complexity. The palate is generous, with supple texture and sweet tannins that are smooth and concentrated, allowing a wine with persistency and great length.

Method

Sourced from El Peñasco vineyard, located in Carmen’s Apalta estates, the granitic soils with considerable moisture to preserve its tannings and acidity, provide good depth and structure, to develop fully ripen Carmenere’s distinctive character and structure. The grapes are handpicked and carefully selected before crushing, undergoing a period of cold maceration to ensure maximum retention of primary fruit flavors and color extraction. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks, with a 40-day total period of maceration. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for 10 months and, after bottling, it is aged in Carmen’s cellars for an additional 2-month period prior to its release.
