LCBO buyers ventured to Chile early last year to identify the country’s finest wines, with a particular focus on unearthing great Carménère from various terroirs around the country.  One result of that trip: an order of this award-winning wine, which will be available for purchase at VINTAGES locations throughout the province beginning April 13th.

‘La Capitana is a single parcel Carménère from the Don Manuel vineyard, planted in 1999 in Puemo.  Stylishly oaked in 10% new wood, it has the classic poise and balance of the region, showing detailed tannins, fresh acidity, tangy black cherry and raspberry fruit and a long finish.  Great at the price.  Drink 2023-2029

92 Points, Tim Atkin MW

Carménère is the perfect wine for lean grilled meats, lamb with mint sauce, roasted stuffed peppers or sautéed garlic kale.  Its subtle herbal notes, combined with rich fruit, weight and structure, are also ideally suited to accompaniments like Chimichurri, green salsas and pestos (Carne Asada).
