Witte wijnen:

Carmen Chardonnay

The grapes were handpicked. After the pressing, which is one of the most important steps for the white wines, the must was kept in contact with its lees for 8 days at 4ºC, to extract concentrated aromas. 80% of the must was fermented in tanks and 20% in barrels, where it remained during 4 months before blending and bottling. No malolactic fermentation was made in this wine.

Winemaker's comment
Bright green-yellow colour. This Chardonnay is very fresh and crispy, with plenty of citrus and mineral notes. It reminds pineapple, white peaches, pears, mango and limes, balanced by the taste of creamy hazelnuts notes. It is a very expressive wine with lot of fruitiness in taste and aroma. Long finish.


Carmen Sauvignon blanc

The grapes were handpicked and carefully selected before pressing to preserve their varietal aromas. After crushing the grapes were macerated with sediments under cool temperature (4º C) for 5 days. Alcoholic fermentation of clarified juices took place in stainless steel tanks at 12 -14. It stayed in contact with its lies for two months before bottling. It was blended and bottled young to preserve the intensity of this variety.

Winemaker's comment
Bright greenish-yellow in colour with fresh and expressive varietal aromas. Deliciously crisp with fresh and juicy citrus and grapefruit, along with nettle and flint. Nice varietal typicity and a long finish.



Carmen Gewürztraminer

87% Gewürztraminer 13% Semillon

100% of the grapes were handpicked and strictly selected before crushing. Immediately after crushing, the grapes stayed in the press, for a 6 hours skin contact reductive period, between 4ºC at 5 °C. Then, they were gently pressed. The most was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts, between 12º C and 13º C.

Winemaker's comment
This is a crispy, soft and fruity wine, with a greenish yellow colour; and nicely aromatic. Intense fresh citric fruit and floral aromas of rose petals and lychee. Some white pepper and mineral hints. A delicate and fine wine; very fresh and floral.


Rosé wijn:

Carmen Rosé

50% Syrah 50% Cabernet Sauvignon

This Rose wine is the result of a blend of our best selection of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes, harvested totally apart. The grapes were crushed, and left on the skins for an average of 14 hours at 5ºC, to extract slight rose colour and fruitiness from the skins. The juice was well clarified and fermented in stainless steel tanks, between 13º- 15ºC. Both varieties have been fermented separately as well. Finally the wines were blended, fined and quickly bottled, obtaining the natural acidity , the freshness and the tipicity of the grapes handled by this purpose.

Winemaker's comment
This is a medium bodied wine, which shows a vivid cherry pink colour; plenty of red fresh fruits aromas, like raspberries and cherries; some mineral and candy notes. When you taste it, you can feel the delicious hints of fresh juicy white peaches and red berries. Good length and a taste that lingers in your mouth.


Rode wijnen:

Carmen Merlot

85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes were handpicked. The grapes remained with the skins for 8 days at 2°C cold maceration before the fermentation. The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 24º-25ºC. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally in tanks and in barrels. 30% of the wine remained in French and American oak barrels for 6 months.

Winemaker's comment:
Bright raspberry colour, with intense aromas of caramel, coffee and chocolate, with a slight touch of cherries and a hint of mint. Soft and silky tannins and lingering finish.


Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon

85% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Cabernet Franc 9% Sirah

Our best grapes for this wine were handpicked. The grapes remained with their skins for 8 days at 5°C – 6ºC cold maceration. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 26ºC to 28ºC. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally in tanks and barrels. 30% of the wine was aged in French and American oak for 6 months.

Winemaker's comment:
Classic Maipo valley ‘s Cabernet Sauvignon ; with a bright ruby colour and characteristic tipicity of this variety Toast aromas that reminds ginger bread, mint and cedar. Delicious, with a good structure, medium body, ripen and soft tannins. It shows a nice balance between fruit and oak, dominated by ripen cherries, fruit confiture and a touch of spices.




Onze kwaliteitscava is van het huis Pere Ventura uit Penedès, Spanje:

Cava Pere Ventura "Brut Reserva"

Elegante droge cava met een prikkelend mondcontact en aangename afdronk. Met een toets van appel en citroen.

Cava Pere Ventura Brut Nature "Trésor"

35% Xarel-lo, 35% Maccabeo en 30% Parellada. Krachtige cava met een lange afdronk. Een subtiele balans tussen fris en complex.

Brut Nature is een stijl zoals in de brut zero of sans dosage bij Champagne: schuimwijn zonder toevoeging van rietsuiker.

Deze methode wint meer en meer terrein bij serieuze cava huizen.
