Winemaker Notes

Great depth of color. The nose offers a splendid and potent expression of the character of Carménère (forest fruit, eucalyptus, and leather), with toasty notes of bay leaf and clove, as well as licorice and black pepper.

This great wine is the ideal companion for roast lamb or pig as well as meats cooked over coals and spiced with aromatic herbs and licorice.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
Vinous

The 2018 Carménère Cordillera de Los Andes comes from hillsides first planted in 1998 in Peumo, Cachapoal, four-fifths aged for 12 months in almost all used barrels. Intense violet in color. Aromas of white pepper and green bell pepper dominate over herbs and candied blueberry, followed by an animal whiff. Juicy with soft tannins; the expression is relaxed, flavorful and direct, with the freshness accounting for a good part of the jovial feel.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Cordillera Carmenere is very peppery with pungent varietal aromas. They try to show the DNA of the variety in the classical one of Peumo through good ripeness but keeping the freshness. The wine comes through as medium-bodied and fluid, balanced and with very fine tannins and with classical notes of cigar ash, cracked peppercorns and herbs. Rating: 90+

Miguel Torres Winery Video

Miguel Torres Chile was founded in 1979 by Familia Torres, who has produced wine in Spain for over 150 years. Being the first foreign winery to establish itself in Chile, Miguel Torres introduced in the country the use of stainless-steel tanks in fermentation and French oak barrels for the aging, technologies that opened a new horizon for the Chilean wine industry. The pioneering spirit of Miguel Torres Chile is more alive than ever guiding projects such as Estelado, the first sparkling wine made with Pais grape which led the rescue of traditional but forgotten varieties, or ¨Empedrado¨, first Pinot Noir from slate soil in Chile and one of the most challenging projects of the winery. From the North down to the Patagonia, Miguel Torres Chile seeks for the best terroirs where every growing region has its own stamp on the wines. Miguel Torres Chile is actively committed to the environment and to the people; all its vineyards are certified organic, and it is one of the biggest wineries certified with Fair Trade. Today, Miguel Torres is leading the recovery of ancestral varieties from the South of Chile, rescuing a unique heritage of the traditional winemaking.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
