The Chilean wine-growing region Valle Central is home to the pure grape variety Santa Digna Carmenère Gran Reserva by Miguel Torres.
The rich red colour of this wine is reminiscent of juicy cherries. The expressive bouquet reveals intense aromas of dark berries - especially blackberry and blackcurrant. This is joined by fine, balsamic notes, subtle hints of eucalyptus and a hint of mandarin. The palate is dominated by the elegant dark fruit. The sweet tannins are accompanied by spicy notes of black pepper and liquorice. Thanks to the wood aging this Chilean red wine still has delicate toast nuances. The body is wonderfully dense with a velvety texture that accompanies the long finish.
In Chile, the crossroads that marked the transition from urban to rural were called Santa Digna. They acted as a kind of boundary stone, symbolizing growth and prosperity, promising protection to all who moved from one area to another.
Vinification of Santa Digna Carmenère Gran Reserva
The Carmenère grapes are harvested from mid-April in the vineyards of Valle Central. After the temperature-controlled fermentation (approx. 28 degrees Celsius) of 7 days, the mash remains on the skins for another month. The wood for this wine is aged in Nevers oak barrels for a total of 12 months. This wine then rests on the bottle for another 3 months.
