Las Mercedes, Carmenere 2015
Carmenere is to Chile what Malbec is to Argentina. It was imported to Chile from France in the 1700s. For a long time, muc Carmenere coming out of Chile was mistakenly thought to be Merlot and labelled as such, but Carmenere, although similar in tannins and body, tends to have a quite different fruit aromas profile -having a green grassy edge.
This is fantastic quality Carmenere -wit fresh juicy blackberry fruit and a hint of red bell pepper. Full bodied but full of fresh, soft fruit.
