Concha y Toro Carmin de Peumo Carmenere 2018

There are 50 units available online.
Product description

Carmin de Peumo is Chile's first iconic Carmenere. A wine that faithfully reflects its origin, the terroir of Peumo, it has been widely praised by world critics. Carmín de Peumo boosts the development of Carmenere at the global level and positions Peumo as the best Chilean location for the production of this French grape variety.

The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m above sea level and extended along the Cachapoal River on terraces of hills of the Coastal Mountains. The vines come from pre-phylloxera cuttings and are trellised to vertical shoot position and cordon pruned.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Once upon a time, Carmin de Peumo was your typical ripe and beefy Carmenere, but not here. This offering, harvested in late May (the equivalent of November in the Northern Hemisphere), deals tomato leaf, currant, cranberry and dried-herb aromas in front of a racy palate medium in weight. Spicy, leafy red-fruit flavours are oaky and come with notes of cocoa and coffee, while a dry and snappy finish is lean by previously set Carmenere standards.
