Coleccion Carignan

Maule Valley, Chile

Carignan 85%, Syrah/Shiraz 12%, Pinot Noir 3%

A deep, intense ruby-red colour, the Apaltagua Colección Carignan has a powerful nose, with notes of wild fruits like blackberry and cherry, with floral notes reminiscent of Syrah and Pinot Noir. More subtle hints of sweetness and cedar are also present. In the mouth it is fresh, deep and potent, with an irresistible purity and an impressive persistence. Ageing potential from now until 2020.

Appealing deep aromas. A fruity nose of raspberry and redcurrant together with fine oaky hints from its six months ageing in oak barrels. Well rounded and balanced. On the palate, it is beautifully fresh and lively, with a slight acidity, and palatable tannins from the American oak round it out. Hints of liquorice in the finish.

Mourvèdre 36%, Syrah/Shiraz 36%, Carignan 28%

This is a classic Rhône style blend with lots of depth on the palate with spice and black berry on the nose. Mulberries and whiffs of cinnamon, dried herbs and liquorice with very subtle spices in the background. On the palate there’s fruit at first, a structured mid-palate, with lovely elegance, finishing with silky savoury tannins. This wine has a sinewy strength to keep it in perfect shape for +5 years.
