2017 Hacienda Araucano Carmenere Reserva
Location: 100% Colchagua.
Tasting notes: Deep crimson color. Fresh and intense aromas of prune, white pepper, notes of the "garrigue" such as rosemary and thyme, and hints of eucalyptus predominate. The mid-palate is round with a dense tannic structure. The aromatic length is dominated by notes of red fruits adds contrast and complexity to this interesting wine.
The Vintage: At the end of winter, during which rainfall was normal compared to the past 5 years which were dry, we began the season with full water reservoirs. The beginning of spring was dry and hot, which resulted in early vegetative development. Our biodynamic practices over the past few years have enabled us to maintain a very good level of quality. We harvested the Syrah grapes during the first days of April. The unusually hot month of March in Chile accelerated the ripening process. This vintage promises to be well-structured, with plenty of tannins and ripe aromas. The fact that the Lolol terroir is influenced by the ocean should enable us to maintain its acidity.
