Secreto de Viu Manent Carmenere 2011

Sku: P60386

El Olivar, located close to Peralillo in the Colchagua Valley. Vineyard age averages 7 years.

Wine maker notes
Deep, dark purple in color, with intense aromas of spice, especially black pepper, as well as ripe cherries, blackberries, and mocha. Very friendly on the palate, well balanced with nicely rounded tannins, good volume, and a pleasingly long finish.


The grapes that go into this wine come from different Carmenere vineyards in the Colchagua Valley, with an average age of 14 years.

The soils are generally deep with good drainage and moderate fertility.

Other text
Viu Manent is a Chilean winery owned by the Viu family. It was founded in 1935 when the Catalonian immigrant Miguel Viu-García and his two sons Agustín and Miguel Viu-Manent founded Bodegas Viu in Santiago de Chile. They bottled and sold wine on the local market under the “Vinos Viu” brand. 
In 1966 Miguel Viu Manent fulfilled his long-time dream of making his own wines when he acquired the Hacienda San Carlos de Cunaco in Colchagua. This traditional estate included 150 hectares of vineyards planted to noble, pre-phylloxera vines, as well as a winery and manor house. 
It was no coincidence that he chose this particular property; it had long supplied the much of the wine he sold as Vinos Viu. 
Viu Manent wines are made with grapes from their own properties in the *Colchagua Valley in Chile’s Central Zone, 130 km (80 mi) southeast of the capital, Santiago. The winery’s 254 hectares (627 acres) are divided among vineyards in San Carlos, La Capilla, and El Olivar. 
At Viu Manent, Sustainability, energy efficiency and climate change are priority issues. Viu Manent is Certified Carbon Neutral.
