Carmen - Chile's first and oldest winery.
A red wine with an intense, violet-ruby colour. The bouquet is fruity with strong plum, cherry, and mulberry notes. The aroma also has a vegetable edge of ripe red pepper, and the flavour is complex, with jams, spinach, and chocolate. Barrel ageing lends this wine pleasant smoky and toast notes, bringing out its spices; texture is soft, with rounded tannins and medium body.
Viña Carmen was founded by Christian Lanz in 1850 and named in honour of his beloved wife.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Spicy dishes and strong, hard cheeses.
