Calcu Carmenere

Calcu Carmenere

The wine is made from 100% Carmenere grapes grown between the Chimbarongo Creek and the Tinguiririca River on the Maquis Estate in central Colchagua Valley. The vineyard block’s two-meter-deep, well-drained alluvial soil contains gravel, contributing to a wine that has pronounced spice and black fruit aromas and velvety, bright tannins. This is a silky Carmenere, with flavors of blackberry, cinnamon and rosemary.

Winery/Brewery Info

Winemaker Rodrigo Romero oversees the production of an exciting line of small production wines made for everyday drinking but yet far more interesting and distinctive than most in its category. Calcu, which means “healing doctor” in the local Mapuche language, was created to emphasize the diversity of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. The fruit is always a combination of the family’s estate fruit, and locally sourced, sustainable grapes from quality Colchagua growers.
