Carignan made from old vines in Maule that are a part of the revolutionary VIGNO movement.
This is a very aromatic wine with distinctive nose of dark berries, intense flowers, and a little tar. The blackberry and spices come out when you taste it, along with a little pepperiness. It is earthy and medium-bodied, giving an Old World impression.
Perfect with the Chilean pastel de choclo (meat and corn casserole), grilled salmon, or some stews.
Bilberries, blueberries, cloves, tea leaves, citrus, tangerine rind, sandalwood, iron, rust and clay, complete a wonderfully complex nose. Incredibly precise and focused on the palate, which frames layers of blue fruit, amidst a sheen of super powerful yet reserved acidity. A vigno triumph. Drink now.James Suckling April 2019
Sourced from a 1958 Carignan vineyard in Melozal, this dry-farmed, bush-vine red was picked early in a warm area. It's a serious, structured number with intense dark berry fruit, vivid acidity and an earthy finish. 2020-25Tim Atkin April 2019
Licorice, lemon peel, blackberry and peppery aromas fill out a nose with depth and complexity. This dry-farmed Carignan from vines planted 60 years ago feels fleshy and full of fruit. Flavorwise, minerally rocky notes accent core plum, berry and mixed spices, while this is firm and doesn't waver or vary on the finish. Drink through 2024.Wine Enthusiast March 2019
Carignan harvested at the end of March before spending 26 months in the barrel. A red with some heft to it, it is a fairly deep purple and brings clear aromas of cherry and oak to the nose. The firm tannins structure a compact palate that leaves hints of jam on the tongue.Vinous March 2020
