Metic

Metic, Carmenere 2018

The Metic wines are made for us by Luca Hodgkinson: a French/English/Spanish expat, who consult for many wineries in Chile and has his own business sourcing grapes from sustainable and in many cases organic vineyards. They make the wines with less manipulation than one would expect at this level.

CLIMATE

Mediterranean climate suited to red varietals. 

TERROIR

The soil is perfect for Carmenere: 2m of pure clay sitting on a gravel old river bed.

VITICULTURE

Vines are 30 years old/ Planted on non-grafted rootstocks. The density is 2.5*1 m (2000 plants/Ha). Irrigation is by hand in the traditional flooding style, twice a year.

VINIFICATION

• Hand harvested

• Destemmed

• Wild yeast fermentation

• Concrete vats

• Ambient ferment

• long maceration of 35 days

• Nature of maturation – concrete tank

• Malo in tank

• Filtration – due to this being a young wine released quickly, the wine was filtered gently

• No fining, suitable for vegans

• Use of sulphur? Yes, but limited. 35 ppm of total sulphur

TASTING NOTE

Ripe dark fruit flavours, very soft palate, an easy drinking Carmenere
