Concha y Toro - Terrunyo Carmenere 2011Elegant and Complex
This is a luxurious Carmenere, elegant and complex with damson and plum abundant on the nose.
Ripe red fruit and tobacco box, mouth filling with a good structure and firm tannins.
Terrunyo's single estate wine range is a collection of terroir wines, carefully crafted and selected by winemaker Ignacio Recabarren. Terrunyo means 'terroir' in Spanish and these wines are made from very specific blocks within Concha y Toro's single estate vineyards. Only the best blocks are chosen for each Terrunyo varietal, from meticulously mapped vineyards.
Ignacio Recabarren's winemaking philosophy for this range is focused on the vineyard. Oak character is minimal; Ignacio prefers the purity of the fruit to shine through.
