Bisquertt ‘Petirrojo’ ‘Reserva’ Colchagua Valley Carmenere 2015

Other Red from Chile
Review Date : 26-Nov-2016
Even, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with a core of dark red berry fruits with notes of red and black currants, along with a layering of dark herbs and light varietal stalkiness. Medium-full bodied, the palate is gentle with soft and light flavours of red and blackcurrants harmoniously entwined with herb and stalk detail. The fruit possesses sweetness and is supported by light, supple tannin extraction and soft acidity. This flows easily and the flavours recede to a light finish of currants and herbs. This is a soft, light and gentle Carmenere with currant, herb and stalky flavours and a supple, easy mouthfeel. Match with herb-marinated red meat dishes over the next 3+ years. Carmenere from the Colchagua Valley from 15 y.o. vines fermented to 13.5% alc., 30% of the wine aged 4-6 months in oak. 16.5/20 Nov 2016 RRP $23.99
