Winemaker’s Comments

Deep red in color with violet hues. The nose presents notes of fresh red fruit like raspberries, intermingled with hints of white pepper and herbal notes, along with soft spice. In the mouth, this is a very elegant wine with firm structure and pronounced, chalky tannins, fresh acidity and it is well-balanced and long. This Carménère reflects Apalta’s higher-elevation vineyards and is atypical of Chilean Carménère because its origin in a high-altitude mountain vineyard has made it a nervous wine with great tension in the mouth. This is definitely a Carménère worth cellaring.

Obliqua 2017

This Carménère wine has excellent ageing potential. You can enjoy it today, in which case, we suggest decanting it first. But it also has 20 years’ ageing potential.

We recommend pairing this wine with roast or grilled red meat, pork rib, mature cheese and spicy dishes that go well with Carménère.
