We are very excited to be offering wines from our newest direct import from Chile, Clos de Luz. Located in the Almahue Valley sub-region of the Rapel Valley, 70 miles Southeast of Santiago, 40 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 28 miles from the Andes Mountains, the Clos de Luz estate was first planted by the current owners' great grandfather in 1892. It now spreads over 33 hectares of vineyards planted in granitic soil with quartz components of volcanic origins. The oldest vines now date back to 1945 and were planted by their grandmother, Luz. They are some of the oldest Carménère vineyards in Chile, and probably in the world. The domaine’s certified sustainable vineyards are 100% ungrafted massal selections. The grapes are hand-harvested with strict fruit selection. The fruit is gently extracted then vinified and raised with minimal interventions, and these wines are elegant with depth and complexity.The wine is aged for 12 months; 50% of the wine in 7,000 liter Taransaud foudres of different uses, 46% in French barrels of 225 and 300 liters and the remaining 6% ages in new 600-liter French Sylvain barrels. Tasting notes: This is a rich and soft version of the genus with a variety of earthy aromas and ripe plum. The palate has a deep and succulent feeling with soft and creamy fruit for closing.
