10 Montevista Carmenère Bottling Note
The Carmenere grape has risen to prominence in Chile and for the un-initiated it has similarities to Merlot but with a more rustic rather than jammy flavour. This 2010 Montevista Reserva Carmenere is an excellent example of what this grape can do.
Broad red fruits with an earthiness on the nose. The palate has firm tannins and reasonable acidity with notes of red cherries and plums followed by an earthy, rustic finish.
