Yes, you read that correctly: Peru is an up-and-coming area for viticulture. It is also the home of the oldest winery in all of South America, Tacama, dating back to 1540 when Spainard Francisco de Carabantes began growing grapes in Valle de Ica, nearly 200 miles south of modern-day Lima. Peru is usually known for Pisco, affectionately known as its ‘brandy grape,’ but international varieties are becoming more popular. This Selección Especial showcases Carménère, a Bordeaux grape with which Chile has had immense success. Carménère can be vegetal and peppery, but the notes on this wine are more refined and subtle; ripe cranberries, raspberries and plum intermingle with spice.
