"Older vines produce fewer pyrazines"", says Eduardo Jordan of this well-balanced Carmenère from the Peumo sub-region of Cachapoal. Aged in 5% new wood, it's a supple, smooth, fleshy red with liquorice, plum and black cherry flavours and a graphite top note. 2024-30"

"The 2020 Carménère Reserva Especial Cordillera de Los Andes spent 12 months in oak barrels, 5% of them new. Dark purple in hue. The ashy nose features blackberry over a layer of chutney. Indulgent and broad in the mouth. The firm tannins enhance the mild structure, with ripe flavors winning out in the end"

“A lovely expression, with chrysanthemum and cocoa nibs paving the way for rich cherry and red currant flavors that are enlivened by mineral acidity, lingering nicely around fine tannins and details of roasted red pepper. Drink now. From Chile.”

About The Winery
Familia Torres, a renowned winemaking family with roots in Spain, has been producing wines for 151 years over 5 generations. Admired and inspiring, Familia Torres seamlessly unites tradition with innovation and follows a sustainable and innovative business model. As founding members of Primum Familiae Vini, a prestigious international association of world-class family-owned wineries, the family is closely connected to people and the land, and leads with energy, passion, and purpose. In 1979, Familia Torres arrived in Chile, marking an incontrovertible turning point in Chilean winemaking. Pioneers in the region, they were the first foreign winery to arrive in the country, kickstarting a new era in the quality of Chilean wines. Embracing the continued pursuit for unique and distinctive wines, Miguel Torres Chile has worked diligently to revive ancestral varieties like the País grape in order to craft identity-driven wines with a sense of history. Over the years, this quest has led to unprecedented wines such as Escaleras de Empedrado, the first Pinot Noir grown on slate soils in Chile, and Manso de Velasco, produced from vines more than 150 years old. An exemplary winery and leader in high-end Chilean wines, Miguel Torres Chile today is under the direction of owner Miguel Torres Maczassek and is built upon by three pillars: organic farming and sustainability, fair trade practices, and innovation.
