Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva Maipo Alto 2009 750ml

Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva Maipo Alto

A red wine with strong aromas of cherry and black plum. Complex aromas and flavors from prolonged aging in barrels, giving notes of vanilla, toast, a smoky edge, and traces of fruits such as raspberry and plum; great body and length, balanced acidity, and pleasant, rounded tannins.

Carmen style seeks harmony, liveliness and expression from Chile's most valuable asset - its fruit. We pay great attention for ripening, exposure to the sun and vineyard sustainability to produce wines that are crisp, balanced and vibrant; wines that do not tend toward excess and pair well with all kinds of dishes.

The grapes were handpicked from our estate vineyards, located over the best alluvial terraces in Alto Maipo Region by the Andes mountains. Extremely concentrated grapes are the result of old vineyards yielding around 8 ton/ha. Before fermentation the grapes are cold macerated for 12 days at 4ºC, to ensure maximum retention of primary fruit aromas and to maximize color extraction. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 28º - 29º C. The total maceration period was of 45 days. The total blend was aged in French oak barrels for a period of 10 months, malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in barrels. After bottling, the wine was aged for an additional 2 months prior to its release.

A delight - complex, full, lush and enjoyable. I am so pleased I bought it. What a find for the price & otherwise.
