Perez Cruz Carmenere Limited Edition is a beautiful Chilean red wine gem from Vina Perez Cruz. Perez Cruz is a family-owned winery specializing in red wines, all produced and bottled at Fundo Liguai de Huelquen. The beautiful state-of-the-art winery sits among 250 hectares of vineyards surrounded by the foothills of the Andes in the Maipo Valley, 45km southeast of Santiago.
"Like all their varietal wines, there is a small percentage of other grapes in the 2016 Carmenere Limited Edition, and this year, it has 9% Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate vineyards. The Limited Edition range is fermented in stainless steel and matured in used oak barrels, this one for around 15 months…a noteworthy effort, with varietal character and balance. Drink 2018-2021."-Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, 88 points!
