About the Wine
This red wine is made by Errázuriz in Aconcagua Valley. Carmenère matches well with lightly-spiced, savoury, meat dishes particularly those with Mediterranean herbs. Formed from primarily Carmenère grapes, this wine is ethically produced, vegan and vegetarian friendly. Supplied by Hatch Mansfield.
Carmenere wine has a deep red color and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries. The tannins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a medium body wine.

A viticultural paradise, where vines were introduced by the Spanish in the sixteenth century. A long, narrow country stretching 800 miles from the deserts of the north to the glacial south and it's these valleys and coasts that give the wine its variety.Explore Chile
