Alka is the fruit of the quest to prove that Carmenรจre is capable of producing a complex, fine wine on its own.

Varieties

  • 100% Carmenere.

Carmenere has now become Chileโ€™s emblematic variety, after having long been confused with the Merlot variety, given its similar appearance and characteristics. It is a vigorous and relatively unfertile variety, producing rich, colorful and tannic wines and requiring careful attention both in the vineyard and in the winery.ย

Tasting note:

  • EYE: Dark cherry red color, bright and very deep.
  • NOSE: The nose is intense and complex. Shows hints of dark fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) well mixed with notes of eucalyptus and spice such as black pepper and cinnamon.
  • MOUTH: On the palate, this unique wine shows a powerful structure with unctuous tannins that reflect the perfect ripeness of the grape. The backbone, well balanced by the acidity, gives a long and complex finish, with aromas of plum marmalade mixed with spices.
