2020 Adobe Reserva Organic Carmenère, Emiliana, Colchagua Valley, Chile

£10.50 inc. VAT

Superb value organic Carmenère that has plenty of luscious fruit and excellent structure.

The Colchagua Valley extends from San Fernando in the north to Chimbarongo in the south. The climate is Mediterranean, and the area receives winds from the south and morning fog.

Springs are frost-free, and summers are very warm, which encourages proper ripening. Summers are hot but with cool night temperatures and this balance ensures the fully ripened grapes have excellent freshness. The soils are medium to very deep, of alluvial origin, and have a silty-loam texture that allows for good vine development.  Malolactic fermentation took place naturally. 20% of the wine was aged in French oak for 6 months and then blended for a more complex character.

An intense purple red colour that has a wonderfully vibrant nose of blackcurrant and plum. A little toasty richness rounds things off splendidly. A great wine for the money.

One for meat course on those balmy barbecue evenings.
