Carmenere - Apalta, Colchagua, Chili - Primus
Carmenere - Apalta, Colchagua - Primus
In het glas heeft deze wijn een elegante violetrode kleur met aroma's van vers fruit als pruimen, braambessen en verfijnde kruidigheid.
De wijn heeft een medium gestructureerde body, kent vriendelijke tannines, iets tabak en licht geroosterde tonen dankzij de rijping in Amerikaans en Frans eiken vaten.
Aromas of red fruits, cedar and boldo herbs. It’s fresh and fruity in mouth with cherry flavors and a touch of pepper and rosemary. Silky with velvety tannins and good volume.
The grapes are handpicked with a double selection before macerating in open stainless steel tanks with native yeasts. The skins remain after fermentation to give structure and soften its finish. The best blocks from the harvest are then selected and blended before aging in French oak barrels for 12 months.
Heerlijk bij spicey Oosters, gegrild rood vlees, stevige vegetarische gerechten, pasta's, Hollandse stamppot en licht gerijpte kazen.

Primus comes from handpicked grapes in organically farmed vineyards. Fermentation takes place exclusively in open tanks with native yeasts, maximizing each variety’s potential. This is complemented by aging in different containers — foudres and French oak barrels — which complete the wine’s evolution and transform our valleys’ best fruit into expressive wines with great elegance, balance and freshness. A perfect accompaniment to an array of gastronomic styles.
Born and raised in Chile, Sofía was inspired to become a winemaker by the surrounding views of vineyards in her grandfather´s farm. She studied at Universidad de Chile, and during university worked as a winemaker in Casa Lapostolle in Apalta -Colchagua Valley. Later on she spent four years at Luis Felipe Edwards, also in the Colchagua Valley, and finally at Aresti Vineyard in Curicó Valley, before becoming an assistant winemaker at Viñedos Veramonte in 2009.
A few years into her new job, the focus was shifted to organic farming and winemaking, a process in which Sofía was deeply involved. Her experience during these years of organic transition have allowed her to develop a keen understanding of terroir, now leading the organic project and producing wines with a sense of place.
