Nerkihue Quiebre Carmenere 2017Brand - Nerkihue Vineyards
Fruit: 〚red & black〛
Immediate notes of fresh ripe raspberry and green bell pepper followed by green peppercorn, fresh black pepper, and spiced fruit - strawberry, black currant, blackberry, and orange peel with cloves stuck in it. Tannins are small and smooth and keep the fruit contained nicely. Lush, but balanced, this wine is all about the fruit. These notes all come together to create a wine that is deep, dry, and bold.
Serve at 62-66°F.
Nerkihue is a family-owned winery located in Lolol, Colchagua Valley. Their vines grow in very steep hills with shallow grounds that benefit from the ocean breeze to create wines that are elegant, fresh, and aromatic. All of their labors are done manually by families from Lolol to keep the local identity and the production is kept limited to have little to no intervention in order to reflect the purity of the terroir.
The Quiebre is a modern wine that seeks to be different and stand out because of its aromas, freshness, and flavor. It is a wine of origin, able to speak for itself without any alteration of its spirit.
