This rich and elegant wine presents all the potential that Viña Echeverria aims to show with this classic Chilean variety. Carefully selected hand-harvested grapes from the Maipo Valley are used to make this powerful and flavoursome wine, which has concentrated aromas of ripe cherries and plums, with notes of spice and chocolate. A silky palate and a delicious fruity mouthful, this full-bodied wine has well-integrated tannins and a long finish.
Carménère is known for its intense fruity flavors and soft tannins. Highly versatile, it naturally matches well with smoked, grilled or roasted meats, chicken, pork, lamb, beef and veal. Due to its character, it also holds up with and matches perfectly with spicy dishes and strong, hard cheeses.
