Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere
Deep dark red in color, with the classic profile of Carmenere from Peumo, with intense notes of ripe plums, black currants, and dark chocolate, along with firm tannic structure and pronoun-ced acidity.
VINEYARD OF ORIGIN: Peumo Vineyard, D.O. Peumo, Cachapoal Valley.
VINEYARD DESCRIPTION: The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m a.s.l. and extends over terraces and hills of the Coastal Range along the Cachapoal River. The vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock and are trellised to vertical shoot position. The soils are deep and have a top layer of clay that retains moisture, which helps control plant vigor and growth, and more importantly, allows the vines to remain active until late May, when Carmenere is harvested.
SOIL: Deep alluvial silty-clay associated with the riverbed.
CLIMATE: Mediterranean, with an average of 19oC difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures and a strong influence of the Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel.
AGING : 14 months in French oak barrels.
AGING POTENTIAL: Drink now or cellar until 2025.
