The 2018 Carménère CA 1 from Los Lingues, Colchagua Andes, was aged for 14 months in French barrels and foudres. Maroon in the glass. The nose delivers plum jam, hints of white pepper and a little smoke. Rich and concentrated, with fairly smooth tannins, this has good volume with a slightly warm finish.

Varietal: Carmenere

Carmenere grapes thrive in moderately warm climates, and have long since spread outwards from their native France to other countries around the world. Back at home, they are included on the list of fine grape varietals allowed for inclusion in the excellent blended wines of Bordeaux, where they are prized for their strong character, deep red color and powerful flavors and aromas. Elsewhere, they are also commonly used as a blending grape, but it is becoming more usual to see single variety bottles made with this special blue grape varietal. Carmenere is famed for its unusual flavors and powerful aromas, which often include wonderful notes of leather and cherries, tobacco and chocolate. As such, it is much in demand by wineries wishing to make memorable wines with a lasting character.

Region: Valle Central

The Valle Central of Chile is widely regarded as being one of the oldest 'New World' wine regions of earth, with a history that extends back over five hundred years to the time of the first European settlers in South America. Whilst they were mainly preoccupied with planting vines for the production of sacramental wines, today, the wine industry of Valle Central has never been stronger. With a wide range of vines flourishing in the region, thanks to the many micro-climates the valley provides, wineries can make the most of their particular location and produce fully ripened grapes of exquisite flavour and character. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenere grow very well all throughout the various areas within Valle Central, and the region is developing a serious reputation for excellence on the world stage.

Country: Chile

When the wealthy new landowners of the 19th century began planting large vineyards in the fertile central valleys of Chile, they must have been impressed at how successful the imported Old World grape varietals took to the land. However, such a fact is hardly surprising; with eight months of blazing sunshine coupled with oceanic winds from the west, and crystal clear spring waters from the Andes irrigating the soil, grapes such as Malbec, Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were given everything they needed to flourish, and more. As the centuries passed, Chilean wineries continued to expand and experiment, resulting in a wide range of wine production methods and techniques, and consistently producing fine quality wines perfect for the international market. Nowadays, Chile is renowned for producing a wide variety of crisp white wines, and juicy, fruity reds enjoyed around the world for their drinkability and flavorful character, making this country very much one of the 'New World', albeit one with a fascinating link to the Old.
