Winemaker Notes

This unusual variety can produce some exceptionally good red wine, and this is one of the best! Think of this wine as having the charm of Merlot with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon - a smooth, seductive wine made by one of Chile's leading winemaker's, Alvaro Espinoza. A complex offering, at a price that can't be beat, Envero is 76% Carmenere and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its dark, rich fruit is complemented by eight months in French oak. All the fruit comes from the prestigious Apalta region of Colchagua, with the vines over 50 years old.

Apaltagua Winery Image
Apaltagua is a winery that specializes in one distinguished, but lesser known, grape varietal - carmenère. Carmenère is the "lost Bordeaux" variety, as it was originally planted in Bordeaux, but was abandoned there because it was too late ripening for their climate, but was known for producing very high quality and elegant wines. Thankfully, the carmenère variety was imported to Chile where it not only survives, but makes exceptionally good wines in the hands of wineries like Apaltagua.

Apaltagua, owned by the seven Donoso Silva brothers, has a missionary-like zeal in its dedication to, and excitement about, the carmenère grape. The winery produces three levels of carmenère-based wines: Apaltagua Estate Carmenère, Apaltagua Envero Carmenère, and Apaltagua Grial Carmenère. Much of the fruit comes from ungrafted, 60-year old carmenère vines all located on the family estate in the prestigious Apalta district of Chile. The resulting wines are exceptionally good, with a chocolately richness and a peppery edge, combining the best attributes of merlot and cabernet sauvignon in one grape.
