A blend that echoes Chile’s historic and signature varietals, blending Carmenere, Carignan and old vine Pais.
Aromas of Mediterranean herbs and red fruit on the nose lead to great acidity and juiciness on the palate. Finish is lively and the perfect balance of freshness and rusticity.
Enjoy with steak, barbeque, and aged cheeses.
In 2015, the amount of Mediterranean grapes was incremented, and the 2015 Canto Sur came to 54% Carménère and 25% each Cariñena and País; this was bottled unoaked after four months in concrete tanks. I tasted an unbottled sample of it and It's much fresher with more aromas of thyme, lavender, rosemary and licorice, and less of the herbal aromas. I don't usually rate unbottled wines, but I had to show the direction where they are going -- in a more Mediterranean way, the way they want to go with their wines. This is a welcomed change and an exciting development to follow over the following years. I look forward to tasting it bottled next time.The Wine Advocate December 2015
Bright magenta. Spice-tinged black raspberry, candied flowers and allspice on the expansive nose. Intense red berry liqueur and rose pastille flavors are lifted and sharpened by smoky minerality and pick up a minerally quality with aeration. Concentrated but energetic and focused, finishing with very good length, subtle tannins and resonating red fruit character.Vinous February 2017
