Carmenère, a grape variety long-lost to the ravages of phylloxera in Bordeaux, has become one of the emblematic red wines of Chile, where it has been saved from extinction. A brilliant carmine hue, Errazuriz's textbook bottling evokes the herbaceous, cedary notes of South American Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot's voluptuousness.
Estate Carmenere 2022 has a beautiful intense ruby red colour with violet hues. It shows notes of red pepper on the nose, with some sweet tones reminiscent of figs and blueberries, all framed by roasted notes and hints of cloves. With a spicy palate and notes of black fruits, figs, graphite and bell pepper, this Carmenere highlights the typicity of the variety with fine-grained tannins, with a very smooth and pleasant mid-palate.
A handy companion to difficult-to-match roasted vegetables.
