Carmenere


 

The Carmenere grape is a wine grape variety originally planted in the Medoc region of Bordeaux, France, where it was used to produce deep red wines and occasionally used for blending purposes in the same manner as Petit Verdot.

 

A member of the Cabernet family of grapes, the name 'Carmenere' originates from the French word for crimson (carmin) which refers to the brilliant crimson colour of the autumn foliage prior to leaf-fall.

 

Since the New World Wine popularity explosion, the Carmenere is now more widely thought of as being the King of Chilean Wines, having previously been thought that it was infact Merlot, due to their similar characteristics.
