IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Lush notes of blackberry and spice are abundant in the nose and follow through to the fruity, spicy palate. The tannins are elegant and refined. This is a powerful wine with a beautiful personality whose rich flavors truly capture the essence of the vineyard.

The 2015 harvest was characterized by a growing season with low rainfall and higher temperatures, which led to lower yields and smaller, more concentrated grapes. The grapes for the Alcance Carmenère were delicately hand-harvested from the two vineyards and went through cold pre-fermentative maceration for 6 days before fermentation in small stainless steel tanks for 20-22 days, with 2 soft pump-overs per day. Malolactic fermentation was done in French oak barrels of very fine grain for 18 months and the wine was racked on three occasions.

Alcance is built around estate-based vineyards that produce wines with all the depth, character, and complexity of many of the world’s finest. With soils ranging from the red granitic soil of the southern coastal mountain range to the gravel rocky loamy soil on the bench of the Lircay river in the foothills of the Andes, our goal is to craft wines that truly reflect our unique terroir and sense of place.

Carmenere, the obscure Bordeaux variety once believed extinct, has now become Chile's signature grape. Alcance Carmenere comes from our estate vineyards in Maule. Lush notes of black fruits, blueberries, and spice are abundant in the nose and follow through the fruity, spicy palate.

Elegant tannins provide structure and elegance. This is a powerful wine with a beautiful personality whose rich flavors truly capture the essence of the San Francisco vineyard.
