Carménère 2016

Carménère 2016

We're kind of known for swimming upstream and thinking outside of the box. This grape is just another example of our steadfast refusal to play by the rules.  So kindly check it out, but keep it under your hat.......

This is the sixth single varietal bottling of Carménère for Moon Curser Vineyards. When the season and winemaking techniques allow, an elegant showing from this rare and challenging grape variety is truly spectacular.


The 2016 Carménère is a medium to full-bodied red wine with a dark raspberry red colour. It displays an opulent nose of cherry, black pepper, violets and fennel seed. The palate also has red cherry and pepper notes but deviates from the nose with other characters like baker’s spice and black fruit. This plush wine has a medium tannin structure. This is an elegant wine that strikes a lovely balance between fruit, spice, acid and its tannic structure. It drinks well now but would also evolve nicely in the bottle over the next six to eight years.
