Siegel Family Wines Special Reserve Carménère Chile | Colchagua Valley

Winemaker Vintage Notes

Pre-fermentative cold maceration for 5 days, with alcoholic fermentation occuring at 27-29°C for a deeper colour and better structure. Smooth pump overs happen once a day at the winemaker’s discretion. Post-fermentative maceration for 2 weeks. Then the wine is separated from its less and malolactic fermentation ensues.

 

Tasting Notes

An intense violet red, on the nose the wine is intense and displays notes of spices, black fruit and dark chocolate. In the mouth it has smooth tannins and a long finish.
