Description:
Grown on a range of granitic and colluvial soils in the Apalta region of Chile's Colchagua Valley. The vineyards are also among the highest and steepest vineyards in the area. This tough environment naturally produces low yields of high quality berries.

Intense red and black fruit characters are accented by tobacco leaf and toasted oak aromas.

Full bodied and fleshy, with a thick, velvety, and slightly sanguine texture.

Drink with rare barbecued steaks for the perfect marriage of smoky flavours and meaty textures.

Combined with the variety of its holdings of vineyards in the country's best growing zones, this allows it to produce a wide range of fine Chilean wines. It was also Carmen that promoted the development of Carmenere variety in the country.

Explore and discover our essence, in a journey that has just begun...
Founded in 1850, Carmen was Chile's first wine producer; landmarks in its history include the rediscovery of the Carmenere grape variety in its vineyards, an event in the study of wine that marked a turning point in the national and international wine industry and made Carmen the force behind Carmenere in Chile.

Carmen's team of wine experts and growers has travelled throughout Chile in search of the best places to harvest its grapes, analysing the soils, climate, and temperatures of each zone. The result is that in modern times, with a track record going back over 160 years, the company possesses valleys in Chile's finest areas for the production of each grape variety, producing fine wines that highlight and express the best characteristics of each variety in its own ideal location, winning countless awards along the way.

Today, Carmen wines are sold in more than 50 countries, bearing witness to the consistency of their quality which is reflected in the company's commitment to finding the perfect conditions to make the finest wines.
