Carmín de Peumo

Carmín de Peumo is Chile’s first iconic Carmenere. A wine that faithfully reflects its origin, the terroir of Peumo, it has been widely praised by world critics. Carmín de Peumo boosts the development of Carmenere at the global level and positions Peumo as the best Chilean location for the production of this French grape variety.

Origin

Domain of Origin (D.O.): Peumo, Valle de Rapel

Origin: 90 percent of the blend is Carmenere from the Peumo Vineyard in Cachapoal Valley. The remaining 10 percent corresponds to other red varieties from Pirque Viejo and Puente Alto.

Soil: Deep clay-loam, alluvial origin. Clay helps retain water and administer it in small doses to the plants, a process that naturally controls excessive growth and fosters optimum grape ripeness.

Climate: Sub humid Mediterranean, with warm days and cold nights. The nearby Cachapoal River exerts a cooling influence especially on summer nights, which broadens daily temperature variation and is a contributing factor to a phased, gradual ripening process.
