Description

Tussock Jumper Carménère 2019

Tussock Jumper Carménère has a lightly oaky, fruity flavour.
Ruby red colour. The nose fills with a good whiff of dark plums, raspberries and tobacco. The dry and full-bodied palate is round with soft tannins and a well-balanced acidity. Plum jam, blackberries and sweet red cherries fill the palate, with a hint of light tobacco and chocolate oak spices.

100% Carménère. The grapes come from vineyards in Central Valley, Chile. The vines grow under the influence of the Andes Mountains with cold nights that drop up to 20°C in comparison to the daytime. Such significant diurnal temperatures are ideal for fruit concentration in the grape.
Handpicking of the grapes in small trays with preselection in the vineyard according to quality classification and ripeness.
