Quintus Gran Reserva Carmenere Maipo Valley 2020

Chile has a long history of winemaking, and the Maipo Valley is one of its most storied regions. With hot sunny days and cool nights, the region is perfectly suited to red grape varieties. Carménère is originally from Bordeaux, France and ended up in Chile by a bit of luck. It looks very similar to Merlot and was unknowingly brought over to Chile when someone mixed it up with its more famous brother. It wasn’t until grapes were genetically tested in the mid-1990s that the truth was revealed.

Carménère produces deeply coloured, rich wines with bold flavours. This wine is packed full of cherry, strawberry, and plum with a bit of spice and mocha. The tannins are soft and mild leaving the palate smooth and plush.
