VIOLET. HERBACEOUS. LIVELY.
CantoSur is a tribute to the Bouchon family’s new roots in Chile. This blend echoes Chile’s historic and signature varietals, blending Carmenere, Carignan and old vine Pais.
Aromas of Mediterranean herbs, violet and red fruit on the nose lead to great acidity and juiciness on the palate. Finish is lively and the perfect balance of freshness and rusticity.
Enjoy with steak, barbeque, and aged cheeses.
Harvested from the Mingre Vineyard in the Maule Valley, which has a dry, coastal climate and soil composed of red granite with high iron oxidation and high amounts of minerals such as quartz. The grapes are hand-harvested with cluster selection and the wine is aged in concrete tanks for 6 months.
