  4. Single Vineyard La Higuera Carmenere

This wine is made from 95% Carmenere, complemented by 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged for ten months in  a combination of stainless steel and French and American oak barrels, followed by an additional eight months of aging in bottle for further refinement.

Tasting Notes

This Carmenere has a very attractive red-violet colour with blue tones. In this wine you find ripe fig, black and red berries mixed with chocolate notes. In mouth, an intense fruity sensation comes up, with some coffee notes. It is well-structured, with smooth and silky tannins. Ideal for lamb or spicy cuisine.

Food Pairing

An ideal pairing with lamb or spiced Middle Eastern cuisine.
