TerraNoble Carmenere COSTA CA2: A Vibrant Chilean Expression

TerraNoble's Carmenere COSTA CA2 is a testament to the unique terroir of Chile's coastal Colchagua Valley and the expressive nature of the Carmenere grape. This exceptional red wine showcases the potential of a grape variety that has found its true home in Chile, offering a complex and flavourful experience perfect for wine enthusiasts and those seeking an introduction to the wonders of Carmenere.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: A deep, rich ruby red with vibrant purple hues.
  • Aroma: Intense aromas of ripe blackberries, dark plums, and cassis mingle with hints of sweet spice, tobacco, and a subtle touch of bell pepper.
  • Palate: The palate bursts with juicy dark fruit flavours, balanced by elegant acidity and smooth, well-integrated tannins. Notes of black cherry, liquorice, and roasted coffee beans emerge, complemented by a subtle herbaceous edge reminiscent of the classic Carmenere character.
  • Finish: The wine lingers with a long, satisfying finish, marked by a delightful balance of fruit intensity, spice, and a touch of earthiness.

Food Pairings

TerraNoble Carmenere COSTA CA2 is a versatile wine that pairs beautifully with a wide range of dishes. Here are some inspired pairings:

  • Hearty Meats: The wine's bold flavours and robust structure make it ideal for pairing with grilled red meats like steak, lamb chops, or venison. The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of the meat, while the tannins complement the flavours.
  • Rich Stews: This Carmenere pairs wonderfully with hearty stews, especially those with rich tomato-based sauces, wild mushrooms, or braised meats. Think boeuf bourguignon or a hearty lamb tagine.
  • Mature Cheeses: The wine's complexity and spice notes marry perfectly with aged cheddar, Gouda, or a pungent blue cheese.
  • Spiced Dishes: The subtle herbaceous notes in the wine make it a great match for dishes with Mediterranean or Middle Eastern flavours, particularly those featuring cumin, coriander and warm spices.

The Essence of Coastal Colchagua

TerraNoble Carmenere COSTA CA2  exemplifies the influence of the cool Pacific breezes on the vineyards of its coastal origin. This maritime influence slows the ripening process, resulting in intense fruit concentration while retaining a refreshing acidity. The wine perfectly captures the essence of Chilean Carmenere, offering a tantalising blend of ripe fruit, spice, and subtle herbaceousness.
