Tasting notes on the wine: 

“This is a terroir-driven wine with real character, the nose expresses greenery in abundance: green bean, berries, and mint. There is a satisfying, highly digestible savory bitterness in the mouth with a spicy but fresh finish. — Pedro J. Rodriguez

About the winemaker: 

“This vineyard is situated in the Rapel Valley of Chile and was created by Denis Duveau and his business partner. As a French man, Denis started his work in wine in Bordeaux and took his expertise to the ideal growing location of Chile where he planted carmenere - a grape typically planted in France which thrives in the conditions of the Rapel Valley. — Pedro J. Rodriguez
