Sol De Andes Carmenère Gran Reserva
Free Delivery with Orders over £75
Sol De Andes Gran Reserva Carmènere has a deep purple-red colour. An enticingly complex nose gives notes of ripe black fruits, spicy black pepper, leafy tobacco aromas and a soft, smokey/coffee oakiness. The palate is rich, savoury and concentrated with supple dark fruit, rounded tannins, good acidity, and a smooth finish thanks to 8-10 months in French oak.

Carmenère is a Bordeaux grape variety that has certainly made a name for itself in Chile. Most of the Chilean plantings of Carmenère were mistakenly believed to be Merlot, but its unique style always prompted questions and, since its true identity was uncovered in 1994, it has won many new fans around the world. If you haven't tried a Carmenère before, the best way we can describe its personality is somewhere between that of Cabernet Sauvignon and of Merlot.
