La Junta Red Blend Reserve - Chile (750mL x 12)


Our blend Syrah / Carménère reserve is a very vibrant violet-red color. The
Carménère excels big nose, giving freshness, fruitiness and complexity and the
Syrah delivers power, structure, and concentration in the mouth.
The grapes were hand-picked in April and taken in bins to the winery, where they were
gently crushed and deposited in stainless steel tanks. Approximately 80% of the fruit
underwent a pre-fermentation maceration at 10ºC (50ºF) for 5–7 days to enhance color
extraction and maximize fruit flavors. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out at 28º– 30º
C (79º–86ºF) with three pumpovers daily.
The duration of post-fermentation maceration depended on the development of each
batch, and contact with the lees lasted for 15–20 days. After this maceration, 70%
of the wine was aged for approximately six months in French oak barrels and 10% in
American oak barrels to create a well-rounded wine and help round out the tannins.
Once the final blend was obtained, the wine was naturally decanted and lightly filtered
before being bottled.
