Special Reserve Carménère by Viña Siegel presents itself with a strong violet-red and a rich bouquet. This seduces with the aromas of ground black spices, star anise and black pepper in a harmonious interplay of dark forest berries.
This Chilean red wine with its polished tannins ensures a juicy mouthfeel and goes into its final with a delicate melting.
Vinification for the Special Reserve Carménère by Viña Siegel
After harvesting, the grapes are subjected to cold maceration for 5 days and alcoholic fermentation at 27-29° Celsius for a darker colour and better structure. After maceration for two weeks, the wine is separated from the yeasts and the malolactic fermentation follows. The wine was then aged for 10-12 months in French oak.
