VISTAMAR CARMÉNÈRE RESERVA
Chile, Cachapoal Valley
12 months oaked
100% Carménère Reserva 2017
91/100 Tim Atkin
Soils of loam to loamy-clayey silt, alluvial-colluvial in origin, stony and with good drainage. Temperate Mediterranean climate with wide variation in temperature between day and night. The climatic conditions were good during the 2014 season, with a long, dry harvesting period in the absence of rain. There were some episodes of frost in the spring and, although these did not affect the Alto Cachapoal, there was a slight fall-off in yields. The wines are eminently fruity, with good tannic concentration and a fresh, spicy personality.
Harvesting: first week of May.
Ageing: 12 months in barrels of French and American oak.
Colour: deep red with violety highlights.
Aroma: red fruit, fresh blackberries and spices, with the subtle hint of herbs typical of the variety.
Flavour: fresh and fruity in the mouth , with mild, kindly tannins, good concentration and a long finish, framed with delicate touches of vanilla.
Serve at: 16-18°C.
Food match: lean meats, turkey with prune sauce, rabbit and mushroom risotto.
Keeping potential: 6 years.
