El Grano Carmenere is made from grapes grown at 450m. The vines are ploughed, no weedkillers are required, and because of the exceptional climate, no chemicals are needed either. The yields are kept low by a green harvest. The juice is fermented at about 30C in stainless steel and sees no oak. This is a terroir-driven wine with real character, the nose expresses greenery in abundance: capsicum, green bean and mint pea and there is a satisfying highly digestible savoury bitterness in the mouth.
