Primus Carmenère, Colchagua Valley

Primus Carmenère, Colchagua Valley

Made from 100% Carmenère from the Primus vineyards located in the renowned Apalta region of Colchagua. This horseshoe-shaped valley is sandwiched between the coastal hills and its warm climate moderated by close proximity to the Pacific Ocean and Tinguiririca River. The grapes from this vineyard produce rich, intensely flavoured wines with a beautiful ripeness, structure and balanced acidity. Aged for a year in French oak barrels, 25% of which are new, it shows plum and blackberry mingling with exotic spice and dried fig. James Suckling scored the 2013 at 93 points and stated 'Now one of the best Carmenères in Chile.'
