Carmin de Peumo

Concha y Toro

Carmín de Peumo, which is produced only in exceptional harvests, makes a powerful argument on behalf of the world-class potential of Chilean Carmenere.

Carmín de Peumo is sourced from specific blocks of 25-year-old Carmenere vines in the Peumo district of Chile’s Cachapoal Valley, between the wine regions of Maipo and Colchagua. Location is critical for production of top quality Carmenere, a thin-skinned grape variety sensitive to extreme heat, but which nevertheless requires an extended growing season in order for fruit to reach optimal ripeness. Warmer than Maipo in the daytime and cooler than Colchagua all round, Peumo is considered the cradle of Chile’s finest Carmenere.
