Red Wine

Concha Y Toro Terrunyo Peumo Vineyard Block 27 Carmenère 2016, Peumo, Cachapoal Valley, Chile: The vines are planted in alluvial clay loam 170 metres above sea level. Winemaker Ignacio Recabarren hones his craft on this single-vineyard bottling. This Chilean red wine is made from the country's iconic red grape Carmenère sourced from the winery estate's Peumo Vineyard Block 27. Grapes are sourced from Entre Cordilleras, Peumo and Cachapoal Valley where the climate is sunny, sub-humid Mediterranean with pronounced daily temperature variation. The Spanish word Terrunyo means terroir. This Carmenère is complex, deep, savoury and bursting with luscious black fruit aromas and flavours. This wine gives and gives right out to a long finish. Brought to us by Concha Y Toro. Pair with grilled meats. Carmenère food pairings: venison stroganoff, venison tenderloin, bison burgers.
