Calcu Reserva Especial Carménère 2013
Freshness and body expression
High quality line of wines produced from the youngest blocks at the Calcu vineyard in Marchigüe. Calcu Special Reserve Carmenere stands out for its intense red fruits, good body and long aftertaste.
Deep, bright and dark red colour. Floral and black spices in a back of fresh red fruit. Full bodied in the palate, elegant and soft tannic structure. Fresh and fruity, with a long finish.
James Suckling, 90 Points: “A tight and fresh wine with linear fruit and tannins that give this wine focus and balance. Very Good”
Amsterdam Tasting Panel: This Carménère is great. Good fruit aromas with the power we expect from Carménère – a very pleasant wine. The bold fruit has a nice balance with the oak used in fermentation and ageing- very typical smell of coffee for Carménère – a pure expression of this grape varietal.
Calcu Reserva Carménère 2013
Calcu Reserva Especial Carménère comes from the hills of Marchigue. Here the breeze from the Pacific Ocean moderates the climate in the growing season. It provides broad diurnal temperatures which results in concentrated and fresh flavors in the grapes. The Reserva Especial is a full-bodied, fruity wine with elegant balance and present, but smooth tannins. 80% of the wine has aged on second and third use French oak barrels and the rest, 20%, on stainless steel tanks to ensure that the pure character of the grape is experienced.
We recommend to open this wine at least 30 minutes before enjoying it and to pair with a steak, stew, roasted vegetables or vegetarian food (try a recipe from Ottolenghi’s Flavour)
Calcu, which means “healing doctor” in the local Mapuche language. Calcu emphasizes the diversity of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. The fruit is always a combination of the family’s estate fruit, and locally sourced, sustainable grapes from quality Colchagua growers. Calcu produces exuberant wines that are fresh and fruity, but also elegant.
