Carmín de Peumo, A Carmenère Icon

Carmín de Peumo is a tribute to the Carmenere grape and a testament to those who have cultivated the variety in Chile for more than a century. Epitomizing genuine artistry, this luxury Carmenere is among the finest in the world; in fact, legendary wine critic Robert Parker named Carmín de Peumo The World’s Best Carmenere for seven vintages. This iconic wine expresses the extraordinary terroir of its origins in Peumo and evokes the variety’s centuries-old history as a noble grape of Bordeaux.

Peumo Vineyard

Revered as among the best terroirs in the world for growing Carmenere, the Peumo region of the Cachapoal Valley has turned Carmenere into Chile’s most iconic wine. Peumo Vineyard, nestled 558 feet above sea level, is heavily influenced by the Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel. The Carmenere vines descend from pre-phylloxera cuttings and are planted in deep clay-loam soils that retain moisture, thereby controlling the vigor of the vines. A vast expanse between day and night temperatures results in dark fruit notes and firm tannins in the site’s Carmenere grapes.
