    Winemaker's Notes:

    Casa Grand Selection Carmenere hails from Chile's central semi-arid Rapel Valley. Here, the Pacific's Humboldt Current keeps the days warm and dry, and the nights cool, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly. Natural, unhurried maturation guarantees that our Carmenère is able to fully mature, yet maintain its unique, fresh notes. The grapes are hand-harvested and transported to the winery in temperature-controlled containers. Strict quality control continues at the winery through a state of the art optical berry selector, Vistalys, which chooses only the freshest and purest grapes for our wine. To extract structure and color, the grapes were macerated up to 4 weeks, during which the fermentation lasted 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks utilizing native yeast. To add complexity, yet maintain the natural expression of the fruit, 21% of the wine was aged in French Oak barrels after fermentation. A dash of Merlot and Syrah supplements more red fruit and roundness to the spiciness of our Casa Grand Selection Carmenere. Delectable when paired with pastas, pork or grilled red meats.
