Casas Del Bosque Gran Reserva Carmenere 2021

Country: Chile
Winery: Casas del Bosque
Varietal: Other Red Wines
UPC Code: 697412000089
Winemaker Notes:

Chilean Carménère has quite a following around the world, and for consumers who enjoy this particular variety, it´s all about the earthy notes and spiciness that make this wine so interesting. The most famous area for this grape is the broader Rapel appellation; however, for their Gran Reserva, Casas del Bosque sources the grapes from longtime growers located in the more specific Cachapoal Valley, where the most highly commended and awarded Carménères come from. The 2019 Gran Reserva Carménère in particular comes from Almahue in the Peumo sub-appellation. Since the season was particularly dry, fruit concentration was exceptionally good, which meant that in order to obtain the level of ripeness and structure that consistently characterizes this wine, the time in oak barrels was shortened by about two months versus the previous vintage. The result is a wine with great concentration and a seamless wood integration, which at the same time gives a pretty good idea of what the terroir in Almahe tastes like.
