The Marques de Casa Concha is a classical style which expresses the character, nobility and concentration of the grapes which have had a long history in Chile. Prize-winners year by year, it has been ranked three times in the prestigious ranking of the Top 100 Wines of the Year, by Wine Spectator.
Dark and deep red. It has a classic Peumo Carmenere profile of intense dark plums, black currants, and dark chocolate. It is modern in tannins wich are soft and finely ground. The wine shows firm tannic structure, with a crisp bite of acidity.
The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m a.s.l. and extends over terraces and hills of the Coastal Range along the Cachapoal River. The vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock and are trellised to vertical shoot position. The soils are deep and have a top layer of clay that retains moisture, which helps control plant vigor and growth, and more importantly, allows the vines to remain active until late May, when Carmenere is harvested.
The grapes were destemmed and gently dropped into closed tanks for fermentation over the course of 8 days with traditional pumpovers. Aging 6 months in French oak barrels.
Food Pairing: Perfect match for red meat, stir fried vegetables and all types of pasta and ripe cheeses.
