Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its clairet carmine color announces an exuberant nose with floral notes of peony and red fruits, blackcurrant and violet aromas. The palate is balanced, bold, big, rounded and nervous with a distinct character. The finish is coated and crisp. A success.
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 ?
Located South of Santiago, the Central Valley is Chile's flagship winegrowing region. Comprised of several different valleys -which each have their own climatic and geological characteristics-, the Central Valley is an ideal enclave protected on the east side by the Andes Mountains and on the west side by the Pacific Ocean. A combination of several factors, such as the semiarid climate, poor soils, a constant irrigation and a temperature gap between days and nights makes it an ideal region to grow wine.
Domain and appellation
Located in the Central Valley since 1875, Santa Carolina stands among Chile’s oldest winemaking maisons.
- Terroir: The selected vineyards are issued from a Central-Valley’s sub-region, the Rapel Valey. Over a fourth of Chile’s wine production comes from this region which is also divided in two sub-regions: the Cachapoal Valley and the Colchagua Valley.
- Viticulture: Sustainable development is central to the viticultural work led in the vines and aims at preserving the vineyard for future generations.
- Vinification: The grapes are harvested during fresh nights. A cold maceration is followed by a fermentation with selected yeasts, a post fermentation and an ageing process in stainless steel tanks.
