Winemaker's Notes

Looking for something delicious and new? As usual, Concha y Toro over-delivers with their Terrunyo Carmenere - you can't go wrong with this wine. "Carmenere at its best..." - Wine & Spirits

This wine is what Bordeaux was originally primarily made from, now its found almost exclusively in Chili. This is the best example in the world of this incredible variety, which combines the best of Cabernet and Merlot (stylistically).

Bright, deep red in color; exhibits hints of chocolate, pepper and strong spices. Tasty and full-bodied, with strong tannins imparting the particular style of this very unique varietal which grows virtually nowhere else.

This Carmenère originates in Lot 21 of Concha y Toro's Peumo vineyards, an area noted for highly permeable, poor soil. A 12-year-old vineyard was selected, the oldest in the area. Yields are extremely low, resulting in rich, concentrated wines.

This Carmenère was blended with a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in French oak barrels for 19 months. Enjoy this wine with red meats, cheeses, pastas and wild rabbit.

This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....

Learn About Carmenere

Carmenere(car-men-YEHR) Chilean Jewel Carmenere is yet another grape that was eventually exiled from the Bordeaux blend. In the late 1800's, Carmenere was brought over to Chile from France, and it never turned back. For a while, Chilean growers thought this grape was Merlot and labeled their wines as such.
