Carménère was exported to Chile from France formerly. After a great phylloxera epidemic in Europe this type of vine was, however, never cultivated again in France. Today it is planted only in Chile and called by the Chileans themselves "Chile's national grape".

This Santa Rita Reserva Carménère matured in wooden barrels (first and second fill) of 60% French and 40% American oak for 8 months.

Allergens: Sulphites
