The 2017 Grey Carmenere was produced with grapes from Alto Maipo, close to the coast, and in the warm 2017 vintage, they harvested the grapes quite early (it was also a dry year). The wine comes through as elegant and balanced, without any herbal/green aromas. The vines are now 20 years old and have reached a good balance. This is an unusual plot, with layers of small stones, and the behavior of the plants is different from other parts of the vineyard. This has good ripeness and keeps the acidity. It’s tasty, long and serious, with a dry finish. 120,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2018
A red-coloured Carménère which reveals the classic varietal notes, like green pepper, but in a gentle, well-rounded manner. With a spectacular nose of black fruit, a touch of earthiness and floral notes, such as violets.
