INFO:
Chile may have put Carmenere on the wine map, but it is with Bordeaux varieties which which it is really starting to make waves. Dense, rich Cabernets; crisp, clean Sauvignon Blancs. . . and then PetitVerdot. But this is still very unusual, even in Chile. A very small amount of this grape still exists in Bordeaux, where it is included in blends for its spicy elegance. On its own, in this warmer climate, it really sings.
