Carmenere Gran Reserva 2017

Active in Chilean agriculture, grape growing and winemaking since 1740, the Echeverria family established their current vineyards and winery in 1923 in the outskirts of Molina, a town in the Curicó Valley. Here, they grow grapes from French pre-philloxera rootstocks, on their 80 ha of vineyards. Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London. This Carmenère combines intense aromas of ripe cherries and blackberries, with hints of red bell pepper, dried fruit and spices. Smooth and full-bodied, it has a round and delicate mouthful due to 12 months oak barrel ageing.
