Carmen Gran Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Description

Deep and intense ruby-red in color. The nose presents aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries, and licorice with smooth, elegant cedar notes. The palate is very rich and generous yet fresh and vibrant at the same time. The wine has abundant fruit and firm tannins that lend structure and depth.

Extra Notes

Viña Carmen was founded by Christian Lanz in 1850 and named in honour of his beloved wife. This grape variety requires warm temperatures to fully develop its unique blackcurrant and spice flavours. A significant fluctuation in temperature from day to night gives the wine a balanced acidity. The proximity of our vineyard to the river enables the winds sweeping in from the Andes to moderate day temperatures, and the high altitude helps to cool down the area at night Alto Maipo is without doubt the best Chilean terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has successfully harnessed that potential.
