Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its dark ruby color with violine highlights announces a fresh nose of red fruits and cassis coulis with brioche and wooded aromas. The palate is big, round, characterized by sweet spices with a finish on velvety and ripe tannins.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

The Bordeaux wine region had a major impact on the Chilean wine industry. It partly explains the high percentage of cabernet sauvignon and merlot grape varieties in their wines.

Domain and appellation

  • Del Pedregal

    Produced in the Loncomilla valley, the Carta Vieja wines belong to the Pedregal domain and carry the savoir-faire of a spanish family who migrated to Chile in 1825 with only vines for luggages.

     

    • Terroir: The vineyards lay on a fertile soil of clay and sand containing humus.

     

    • Viticulture: Carta Vieja sources its grapes from its youngest vineyards.

     

    • Vinification: The grapes macerate for a total of 15 days with 3 days of cold skin contact and pumpover operations. The wines then ferment at a temperature of 20°/25° C.
