Santa Alicia Carmenere Reserva
Bold, ripe and delicious red wine, with tiers of rich plum, chocolate and black cherry flavour, with elegant toasted oak and smooth polished tannins. After-taste is deep and rich, with flavours lingering on and on.
Santa Alicia have been producing wines in the heart of Maipo Valley since 1954. With grapes from three select communes, a state of the art winery, and judicious use of the finest American and French oak barrels, we believe the wines represent the highest price/quality ratio in Chile.
In 2007, they were named Chilean Wine Producer of the Year for "best overall results from a Chilean winery" in the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition in London.
