Carmenère Gran Reserva

Viña Los Vascos
At Los Vascos cultivation is at our heart; we cultivate not only vineyards but our dream to transform our vast land into a fruitful eco-system producing the most elegant Chilean wines. We are free spirited but remember our heritage. Our holistic approach encompasses and protects all - from our short-legged sheep clearing weeds without devouring precious grapes to our artisans honing hand-made knives to carefully tend the vines. We embody the Chilean paradox, meticulous in our work, easy going and warm in our personality. We are independent yet proud to cultivate our community because we are stronger and happier together.

The vintage
A rainy winter led to a cool spring where maximum temperatures did not exceed 26°C . The summer saw early rains and unusually low temperatures, undoubtedly the coolest season in recent years. This, of course, is reflected in the wines.
It was necessary to visit, taste and analyze more frequently in order to make the right decision on the harvest date.
Carménère : 100%

Clean, deep purple color with ruby highlights.

The first impression on the nose is very fruity, with notes of raspberries and fresh plums, then revealing classic varietal notes such as green pepper, white pepper and bay leaf, accompanied by the support from barrel aging with notes of chocolate, graphite and cedar.

In the mouth it has a light sucrosity, good balance, a pleasant volume and present tannins that make it long and persistent.
Overall a different Carmenere, where the fruity, spicy notes and mouthfeel move in a fresher palate than what we would normally find in a Carmenere from Los Vascos. A clear reflection of an exceptionally fresh vintage.
