De Martino Estate Carménère 2019 750ML - Chile

Awarded Silver Medal & 92/100 Points

NWWA 2021

 This Carmenere has a deep ruby red colour with violet hues. Aromatics are fresh and intense with notes of ripe dark berry fruits, black pepper and spices. The palate has a soft texture with ripe tannins, balancing acidity and a fresh fruit core with a lingering finish.

Since 1934 and for over four generations, the family has specialised in producing wines that are noted for their sense of place, purity and balance. With this in mind, they carry out sustainable vine growing practices and traditional winemaking methods to achieve wines that represent them as well as their vineyards.

The grapes were hand-harvested during the second week of April 2018. The grapes are 100% destemmed and undergo cold maceration for 2-3 days. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous, and the wine spent a total of 21 days in contact with the skins before pressing. Malolactic fermentation is completed in French barriques and concrete vats. The wine was aged for 7-9 months in used French barriques and concrete vats.

Food Pairing: Pairs marvelously well with game meat, garnished with sweet & sour sauces.

ABV: 14%
