Bouchon Granito Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenere 2015
A fantastic wine which is all about terroir, rich and bold with a wonderful minerality.
The Bouchon story began in 1892 when Emile Bouchon settled in the Colchagua Valley in Chile from his native Saint Emilion in Bordeaux. Today, the vineyards are located in the Maule Valley and Julio Bouchon Senior and his children continue this long tradition of winemaking. Granito is a micro-terroir in a granitic soil which is more than 120 million years old. They are old vines with deep roots. It is minerality expressed in the bottle. This blend is from Mingre estate, Maule’s Dry coastal area, 45Km from the Pacific Ocean and 193 meters above sea level. It is product of old vines, which did not receive any irrigation. It is hand harvested and fermentation takes place in old concrete tanks and then the wine is aged in oak for 18 months.
Rich purple colour, dark berry fruit with liquorice and warm spice, fresh youthful style but very approachable and a lovely complex finish.
