Carménère 2018

Carménère 2018

Carménère, originally of Bordeaux, has now become known as a staple of Chilean wine. We remain one of only few wineries producing a varietal Carménère wine in Canada. Delicious, rare and intriguing.

This is the eighth 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 2018 Carménère is a medium-bodied red wine with a deep ruby red colour. It displays a ripe nose of raspberries, black pepper, clove and anise. The palate is incredibly smooth, with flavours of blackberries, rose petals, cigar box and thyme. This is an elegant wine with velvety tannin structure that strikes the perfect balance of fruit, spice and savoury characteristics. A long, warm finish and luxurious glassy mouthfeel round out the tasting experience. The wine drinks well now but will also develop in the bottle over the next seven years. Enjoy!
