2017 CARMENÈRE, Petreo, Caliterra. Colchagua, Chile
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Colchagua (part of the larger Rapel Valley) is about 200km south of Santiago and stretches from the Andes foothills to the Andes - so there are actually many different microclimates within the region.
This is from a cool, rocky vineyard which produces a bright, lively style, quite different to most wines in the area.
Grape Variety: 100% Carmenère
Producer: Caliterra, owned by Errazuriz, is a pretty large producer - they have over 1,000 hectares in Colchagua. For years they have produced fruity, rather oaky wines which have sold predominantly in the US market. In the last few years Rodrigo Zamorano has changed the emphasis and now the style is much fresher, with the wines lower in alcohol and more elegant.
