Grown in the warm Andes foothills of the Colchagua valley, CA1 is a Carmenere of great character and power. This is a rich wine, with intense aromas of ripe red fruit. The round tannins, together with the lush concentration of fruit on the palate reveals to us the best expression of Carmenere grown at the foot of the Andes Mountains.
Grapes were picked at its maximum of maturity to keep and maintain all its aromatics potential.
This Carmenere is sourced from our vineyards located on the warm Andes Foothills of the Colchagua Valley, in a place called Los Lingues. The micro-terroir of Los Lingues gives to this Carmenere unique characteristics in terms of red fruits. Aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.
