Product Overview

Matured for 18 months in French Oak, Koyle’s award-winning 2018 Cerro Basalto “Cuartel G2” Carmenere Blend is at once bold and powerful, fresh and balanced. It has a bright, violet hue and offers pure fragrances of warming, peppery spices, herbs, and some graphite minerality. On the palate, expect flavors of ripe red fruits, plum, and cedar, with further spicy nuances. A taut structure and silky smooth tannins lead to a long, mouthwatering, terroir-driven finish, expressive of the Basaltic rock from which it gets its name.

Nestled in the heart of the Colchagua Valley in Chile’s premier viticultural region, Koyle Family Vineyards is proud to produce sustainable varietal wines of origin. Their dedication to organic and biodynamic growing techniques, natural fermentation, and minimally invasive winemaking methods has resulted in a portfolio of refined, pure wines expressive of their unique terroir.
