Natura Carmenere 2013
Intense red. Attractive, cherry aromas with hints of chocolate and spice. Big volume on the palate with soft round tannins, and a firm, well-balanced structure. Good balance between fruit and oak with a long, juicy finish.
100% Carmenere. Certified Organic. Produced and bottled by Vinyedos Emiliana. Founded in 1986 by Chile's Guilisasti family, Emiliana Vineyards is a privately owned initiative dedicated to producing wines made from organic grapes and, in the case of the super-premium Emiliana Ge and Coyam, made in accordance with biodynamic principals as well. Introduction of the debut 2003 vintage Ge marked the release of South America's first-ever, certified biodynamic wine. The progressive conversion of Emiliana's estate vineyards began in the mid-1990s. Today, Emiliana's vineyards total 2,812 acres in the regions of Maipo, Colchagua, Casablanca, Bio-Bio, Cachapoal, and Limari. Over half of Emiliana's vineyards enjoy official organic and biodynamic certification. Collectively, Emiliana constitutes the single, largest source of estate-grown organic wines in the world. Premium and pure. It's that simple. Natura wines are made from the purest grapes nature can provide and with the utmost respect for the environment so you can feel good about sharing and enjoying. Organic viticulture leads to a higher-quality, better-tasting wine that is most expressive of terroir, where the true character of the vineyards and grapes comes through. The most distinctive flavors emerge, resulting in remarkably unique and complex wines.
