Do you like wines produced from Carménère grape variety?
👉🍷Carménère 2015, Gran Reserva, Von Siebenthal, Aconcagua Valley, Chile, is one of my favorite Carménère in Chile!.
The Carmenere grape, a variety originally from Bordeaux, has survived miraculously for more than a century in Chile where for many years it was confused with Merlot.
In Aconcagua Valley it thrives and attains its maximum organoleptic expression benefitting from long autumn months with no rain or hail.
In Panquehue,15 years ago, Mauro Von Siebenthal planted Carmenere on the granitic soil of the slopes of Orocoipo hill. The Gran Reserva embodies a high degree of complexity and delicacy: it’s the wine that Bacchus would carry in his satchel...😉🍷👈.

👉🍷Carménère 2015, Gran Reserva, Von Siebenthal, Vale do Aconcágua, Chile, é um dos meus favoritos no Chile !.
A uva Carmenere, uma é variedade originária de Bordeaux, sobreviveu milagrosamente por mais de um século no Chile, onde por muitos anos foi confundida com o Merlot.
No Vale do Aconcagua, ela prospera e alcança sua máxima expressão organoléptica, beneficiando-se de longos meses de outono sem chuva ou granizo.
Em Panquehue, há 15 anos, Mauro Von Siebenthal plantou Carmenere no solo granítico das encostas do morro Orocoipo. O Gran Reserva incorpora um alto grau de complexidade e delicadeza: é o vinho que Baco levaria em sua mochila ... 😉🍷👈.
Two nights at Lower Dover—a farm #hostel of sorts located in the #Cayo district village of #Unitedville —wasn’t nearly enough... 😭🌿
Photo #1 : Hibiscus being de-seeded and readied for fermentation—Lower Dover isn’t just an inn/hostel; they have a tiny, #organic#winemaking operation on site. #Hibiscus#wine available in sparkling or regular. 🍷👅
Photos #2 & #3 : Admiring the #Belize River, which runs through the #LowerDover property.
Photos #4 : Ten years after buying the multi-acre property, Maddy (pictured) happened to stumble upon some suspicious-looking hills to the West of the main house. The area is generally flat, so she instinctually knew what she was likely sitting (or standing) on—Mayan ruins. Turns out she was right... and the site has been slowly excavated over the past 15 years.
Photo #5 : Kiki & her new German friend, Kip, check out the view from the “palace.”

and now the weekend’s gone. Spent it with wine from the beginning till the end at my favourite place, Manimal.
I even bought an aerator for the time I drink cheap wine at my house when I can’t go down there. Energy charged for a week🔊🍷💪🍷🔊#wineweekend
Still over the moon, tired, and Syrah-stained from barreling last night. Between freezing temperatures, smoky air (we went back and forth with and without masks), and doing everything by hand, it took about 7 hours total to get it pressed off into one barrel. Omg! So thankful for my family’s help tending to the punchdowns and housing the macro bin, David’s innovative wit and brawn, and my winemaking friends who know waaaaay more about this than me and were kind enough to lend their knowledge, gear and hands. I love my hometown and its exciting to finally #dothething I have talked about doing “someday” for a long time. Someday is now! And now, we wait.

This past week was Beaujolais Nouveau release day and everyone seems to be talking about it! Was happy to try Georges Duboeuf’s release - pleasant acidity, plum with underlying lighter red fruits. ⠀⠀
I also learned more about a Nouveau style wine is. Basically it describes wines that are released only weeks after they are harvested, and they are fermented using a carbonic maceration process. ⠀⠀
Beaujolais Nouveau day has been a traditional day for celebration of the end of harvest for vintners in the area for decades. Georges Duboeuf himself is actually responsible for much of the success in marketing and production of the Nouveau style wine. We even see other regions like California taking on the Nouveau style for producing some younger wines!
On Tuesday 11/27 we will host @jasminehirsch of @hirschvineyards as she walks us through her top picks from her families vineyard. Snacks by @cheferikniel. $65 ~ includes gratuity. Link in profile for tickets!
