Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere
Deep dark red in color, with the classic prole of Carmenere from Peumo, with intense notes of ripe plums, black currants, and dark chocolate, along with firm tannic structure and pronounced acidity.
VINEYARD OF ORIGIN: Peumo Vineyard, D.O. Peumo, Cachapoal Valley.
VINEYARD DESCRIPTION: The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m a.s.l. and extends over the terraces and hills of the Coastal Range along the Cachapoal River. The vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock and are trellised to vertical shoot position. The soils are deep and have a top layer of clay that retains moisture, which helps control plant vigor and growth, and more importantly, allows the vines to remain active until late May, when Carmenere is harvested.
SOIL: River bench associated soils, deep alluvial clay loam.
CLIMATE: Mediterranean with a strong influence of the Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel. Less influenced by the Andes.
AGING : 16 months in French oak barrels.
AGING POTENTIAL: Drink now or cellar until 2023.
