Apaltagua 'Envero' Gran Reserva Carmenere 2017

Apaltagua 'Envero' Gran Reserva Carmenere 2017 92 pts James Suckling

Tasting Notes

Aromatically this has some pink peppercorn notes along with an herbal, roasted red pepper note and a touch of tobacco leaf with an assortment of red and dark fruits on the nose. An engaging plump and juicy mid palate that offers up flavors of plum and dark cherry are nuanced with savory touch of tobacco on the finish. Fuller bodied and concentrated, round silky tannins bring this to a lingering, smooth finish. This is showing well as we speak and should drink impressively over the next 2-3 years quite easily.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts James Suckling April 2019
This is an impressive carmenere with the more usual peppercorn character cast across dark licorice, peppermint, dark plums and cherries. Full-bodied with ripe and round tannins, a good layering of acidity and a medium-chewy finish. Drink in 2022



Winemaker Notes

The grapes grown for Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero come from our 60-hectare vineyard in Apalta in the Colchagua Valley. Apalta is known as the valley blessed by the hand of God for its extraordinary natural conditions for the development of grape vines. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are transported in trays of 10 kilograms, preserving the organoleptic quality of the grapes.
The wine is red-violet, bright, lively, with ripe fruits, tobacco and notes of spices. Our Apaltagua Gran Reserva has a remarkable combination of notes of ripe red fruits and the complexity delivered by oak barrels. The palate is juicy and concentrated, highlighting the silky tannins with a taste of raspberry, plum and a touch of tobacco. The end is long and persistent.
