De Gras Carmenere Reserva 2016 (1x 75cl)

This wine is the same as the MontGras wine of same vintage and status, ie the 2016 Carmenère Reserva, the MontGras simply being the supermarket label for the same wine. Should any doubt exist over this, we would invite you to take a look at the producer's own fiches techniques/technical data sheets for the two wines (see blue link below).

MontGras Reserva Carmenere 2016 - October 2017 Decanter review

The wine is 85% Carmenere, 15% Merlot and hails from the Colchagua Valley, the heartland of Carmenère. Grapes are hand harvested, and the wine was oaked in a measured way (75% oaked, 25% unoaked; for the oaked portion: 80% French oak, 20% American oak; 25% of oak was new; oaking lasted 5 months) to impart complexity without loss of the distinctive Carmenère flavours and fruit.

Deep purple / red in colour with a full bouquet of spice, oak and black fruit and a firm but juicy palate. Offers plum, damson and curranty characters alongside well-integrated toasty oak and layers of vanilla. Excellent, very affordable example of Carmenère.
