Deep, dark and opaque garnet in colour. Aromas of exotic spice, toast and hints of black fruit and blueberries on the nose. Ripe red and dark berry fruit flavours with spicy notes. A round mid-palate with elegant yet powerful tannins.
Background - A blend of Carmenere, The Lost Bordeaux Grape, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, Primus The Blend is a combination of power and finesse from Veramonte's Casablanca Valley Estate. Definitely a 'terroir' wine, Primus showcases the rare Carmenere variety, a grape once prevalent in Bordeaux in the 1800's when Chile first began importing vines from France. Distinct and exotic, Carmenere is making a strong comeback as a blending component for premium wines.
