Presently infrequently found in France, the world’s biggest region planted with this assortment is in Chile, with in excess of 8,800 hectares (2009) developed in the Central Valley.
As such, Chile delivers by far most of Carménère wines accessible today and as the Chilean wine industry develops, more experimentation is being completed on Carménère’s potential
as a mixing grape, particularly with Cabernet Sauvignon.
PREPARATION & FLAVOUR?
The wine is prized for its flexible red-and-dark berry flavours (in a comparable style to Merlot) and herbaceous green peppercorn notes.
Most Carménère wines have striking fragrances of raspberry sauce, acrid cherry, green peppercorn, and a stone like minerality. On the more moderate end, you can hope to discover Carménère wines with legit fruity red berry smells and tart kinds of raspberry with a
quietly unpleasant taste like kale. Carménère has numerous likenesses as far as body and surface to Merlot.
On the better quality, the herbaceous, harsh notes withdraw the scene for sweet berries, refined light tannin, and a mixed note, similar to cocoa powder.
