Mingre vineyard dry costal area, 45 Kms from Pacific. Maule Valley
62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Carménère. Handpicked in small boxes.

We have been lucky enough to try Bouchon wines over 18 years and wines from the Mingre vineyard area are always thrilling.

The brilliant shine of red colour in the glass gives a hint as to the wines quality. Aromas of freshly cut peppers mingle with pure blackcurrant fruit. On the palate it is direct with spades of fruit backed up nicely with desirable tannins. Its elegant wine, with a nice acidity that keeps the balance with all the fruit. Granito is a wine for special occasions, to enjoy by itself or with red lean and white meat accompanied by mushrooms. It is also perfect with hard cheeses.
Will cellar well over 10 years or more.
