Product details

The 'heart' of this wine is a seamless blend of Carménère, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Pais, delivering an explosion of intense red fruit flavors supported by firm acidity and long tannins, which makes for a wine that will evolve for years with good cellaring. Excellent with game, lamb, intense cheeses and for sharing with friends.

Tasting notes: black cherry, raspberry preserves, blackberry and blueberry balanced with underlying oak.

CURICÓ VALLEY, CHILE
Corazón, Spanish for ‘heart’, comes from the Curicó Valley located in the heart of Chile. Nestled in between the Andes and Coastal Range mountains, the valley’s vineyards reap many benefits from these towering neighbours. Meltwater rivers provide irrigation during dry summer months and deposit rich minerals in the soil, and hot sunny days are balanced by cool air drifting down from the snow-covered peaks of the Andes at night; these daily temperature swings cause the grapes to ripen slowly, allowing for optimal flavour, tannin and colour development.

CORAZÓN
This wine is a charismatic blend of Carménère, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Pais. Carménère, the signature Chilean grape, delivers jammy raspberry and herbal spice. Cab Franc brings bold cherry, juicy berry and acidity, while Syrah lends intense black fruit flavours and tannin. Pais, widely planted in Chile for centuries but little-known elsewhere, rounds out the blend with rustic red fruit and crisp acidity. This juicy blend is full of expressive black and red berries, surrounded by cherry and tart plum notes in harmony with underlying oak, bright acidity and smooth polished tannins. Pair with rosemary lamb chops, beef skewers, Portobello mushroom burgers and aged cheddar.

This item is a PRE-ORDER. Expected Ship Date is February 2019.
