In the dry climate of Chile, the Carmenere variety yields much more reliable results than in its humid and cool home in Bordeaux, where it is hardly cultivated today. As a result, Chile has now developed with more than 7,000 hectares of Carmenere into the main cultivation area of this variety.
The soft year 2018 has gained by adding of 6 % Syraht, a very successful addition.

An easy going red wine, nearly everybody will enjoy.
