The Viu Manent Carmenere “El Incidente” is an exquisite red wine composed of Carménère 97%, now considered to be Chile’s emblematic variety, and Malbec 3%. “El Incidente” is named after the now-legendary balloon flight Viu Manent’s Founder took with some friends over their Colchagua vineyards. Their trip ended unexpectedly when they landed in the middle of an open air market in the town of Santa Cruz. The wine was aged for 17 months in French oak barrels (41% new), and was not filtered prior to bottling to conserve all of its concentration and character. It has a deep, intense violet colour. The complex, fruity, and ripe nose expresses the characteristics of the year with aromas of black fruit, black pepper, and a bit of leather and blonde tobacco. There is great structure and complexity on the palate with tannins that are both chalky (typical of the terroir at La Capilla) and silky, and that lend way to a profoundly persistent finish. Another unique choice from Viu Manent Winery's selection of fine Chilean wines. Pick yours up from PRESTO CAVA today!
