Sutil Limited Release Carmenere

2017

In a Nutshell

Fantastic example of Chilean Carmenere

Tasting Notes

Very deep and lively carmine-red in color with a ruby hue. The aromas show tremendous character and feature fresh red fruit such as plums and strawberries as well as blackberries and spicy notes of black and white pepper, cloves, and a bit of bay leaf that all meld with notes of mocha and fresh roasted coffee. The palate is smooth and very silky with abundant flavor and a long finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand picked into 15-kilo boxes in late April and transported to the winery. The bunches were placed into small, closed stainless steel tanks with both pre- and post-fermentation macerations, for a total of 35 days of skin contact. Once the new wine was separated from its solids, it was racked to French oak barrels and aged for 16 months.
