Chingol Valle de Colchagua Carmenere Gran Reserva 2014

Other Red from Chile
Review Date : 27-Aug-2017
Full, even dark ruby-red colour. The nose is elegantly presented and finely composed with interwoven aroma of blackcurrant leaf, blackcurrant fruit, dark and fresh herbs, and suggestions of stalk and stem. The aromatics are gentle and harmoniously melded. Medium-full bodied, the palate has an elegant and moderately concentrated core of curranty fruit along with mint and soft, dark herbs and a little leafiness and stalk. The flavours are harmoniously entwined, and balanced by light, fine-gained tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The wine has good linearity and flows to a lingering finish of herbs and leaf, enlivened by a kick of acidity. This is a harmonious and integrated Carmenere with light, curranty, herb and leafy fruit and fine tannin structure with a fresh mouthfeel. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes over the next 3-4 years. Carmenere fruit fermented to 13.5% alc. 16.0+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $17.99
