This winery is one of the important players in Chile. Taking its name from the Maipo province just south of Santiago, for 70 years they have made distinguished wines that authentically express a truly remarkable natural environment. Chile’s vinous history reaches back to the 1550s, but grapes like Carménère did not arrive from France until the early 1800s. Native to Bordeaux, Carménère (often spelled without the accents in Chile) is a pedigreed red grape, but one with particular ripening needs - as in a super-long growing season. This is absolutely not what Bordeaux deals up year after year, and as a result there is very little Carménère planted there now. But Chile’s climate is perfect, and it’s been embraced as a true signature variety for the country. Expect deep colour, appealing scents of petals and graphite, enticing flavours of blackberry and chocolate, lifted with coffee, black pepper and smoked herbs. Pair it with a fragrant, spicy curry, or Lebanese koftas and tabbouleh. Vitral Carménère is also a natural with robust vegetarian dishes like moussaka, ratatouille, or grilled mushroom pizza. Don’t stint on the herbs in these dishes, to dynamize the pairing!
