2013 Veramonte, Red Blend, Chile
To create a Red Blend that reveals layer after layer of rich flavors and luscious textures, we combined five distinct varietals from our three estat e vineyards in Chile. Merlot from our cool climate Casablanca estate adds bright notes of cherry and raspberry; Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from our Apalta estate adds dark notes of fig, blackberry and black current, as well as richness and structure; Carmenere and Cabernet Franc from our Marchigue vineyard in Colchagua Valley completes this blend with roundness, earthiness and a hint of spice. To create a seamless blend of superior character, we co-fermented several varieties together, such as Carmenere with Cabernet Franc, and Merlot with Syrah. The result is a beautiful blend with richness and depth.
