Carmen Gran Reserva Carmenère
The Majestic buyers have been busy the past few months searching, and more importantly tasting, lots of wines to find the perfect selection of new wines to launch into the Majestic range this winter. Kate McFruin, Manager of Majestic Muswell Hill gives us an insight to one of our many new Chilean wines…
“One of my festive favourites this year is the new Carmen Gran Reserva Carmenere. It’s full bodied, rich and dark with sumptuous flavours of cocoa, blackcurrant and vanilla – the perfect winter warmer to accompany a char grilled peppered steak!“

Grown on a range of granitic and colluvial soils in the Apalta region of Chile’s Colchagua Valley. The vineyards are also among the highest and steepest vineyards in the area. This tough environment naturally produces low yields of high quality berries. Intense red and black fruit characters are accented by tobacco leaf and toasted oak aromas. Full bodied and fleshy, with a thick, velvety, and slightly sanguine texture. Drink with rare barbecued steaks for the perfect marriage of smoky flavours and meaty textures.
*Price valid until 31 January 2011.
