Matetic Corralillo Carménère 2014

The Matetic Corralillo Carménère comes from the Colchagua valley, specifically Apalta, from vineyards located in hillsides with great exposure to the sun. The vineyard is managed under biodynamic farming principles, being a very specific management in terms of fertility, search of balance between ripeness and varietal expression, and fruit concentration.

The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak, coming from different cooperages, forests and toasting levels. The final blend included a small portion of Syrah from San Antonio, to add freshness and complexity.

Deep violet in colour  the wine is very intense on the nose, where notes of black fruits, chocolate and spices combine. In the mouth it offers a good balance between power and freshness, great volume and with an intense, long aftertaste.
