Carménère, Cabernet sauvignon (5%)
The Viña Echeverría Reserva range comprises seven wines, which are characterized by their lively and fruity appeal. Fresh and vibrant with little or no oak, they are a true expression of the individuality of each grape variety. These are wines which work as well as aperitif or house wines, as they do with food.
The grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in 225 litre French used barrels for 10-12 months.
This Carmenère combines intense aromas of ripe cherries and blackberries, with hints of red bell pepper, dried fruit and spices. Smooth and full-bodied, it has a round and delicate mouthful due to 12 months oak barrel ageing.
