Grown in the warm Andes foothills of the Colchagua valley, CA1 is a Carmenere of great character and power. This is a rich wine, with intense aromas of ripe red fruit. The round tannins, together with the lush concentration of the fruit on the palate reveals to us the best expression of Carmenere grown at the foot of the Andes Mountain.
This is a very unique Carmenere, it offers both refreshing elegance and character. The constant breezes of the pacific ocean cool the grapes, slowly maturing the intense aromas of dark fruit and spice. Together with the soft texture and intense flavours on the palate, this wine is a perfect expression of Carmenere from the coast of Chile.
With floral, redcurrant, tart cherry, cranberry and spicy balsam notes wafting over sleek tannins and rock-fresh acidity, it's the sort of red that goes with a wide range of foods. I enjoyed it with vine-wrapped roast quail (the pan deglazed lightly with pomegranate molasses) and an array of variously herbed and spiced roast vegetables (courgettes, peppers, aubergines, tomatoes, onions, garlic), but there aren't many savoury dishes I wouldn't try it with.
