About this wine

Estampa LaCruz’s sweet, fresh and fruity aromas recall berries and ripe red fruits over a complex base with notes of liquorice and subtle toasted notes. Well structured on the palate with complex velvety tannins, fresh acidity, and a sweet and silky finish. A blend of 72% Carménère, 16% Syrah and 12% Petit Verdot.

    string(974) "The Carménère grape variety was originally planted in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, where it was used to produce deep red wines and occasionally used for blending purposes in the same manner as Petit Verdot.

A member of the Cabernet family of grapes, the name "Carménère" originates from the French word for crimson (carmin) which refers to the brilliant crimson colour of the autumn foliage prior to leaf-fall.

Now rarely found in France, the world's largest area planted with this variety is in Chile, as such Chile produces the vast majority of Carménère wines available today and as the Chilean wine industry grows, more experimentation is being carried out on Carménère's potential as a blending grape, especially with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Carménère wine has a deep red colour and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries. The tannins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a medium body wine."
