Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Carmenere

2016, Central Valley Chile
  • Pronounced "car-men-yare" - this is the grape that Chile does best! Amazing value from South America!
  • "Casillero del Diablo" - Cellar of the Devil! Or so the story goes...
  • Dark fruited little drop, medium bodied with a touch of smoky/spicyness
  • RRP $17.99


    Chilean winemaker Don Melchor de Concha y Toro was terrified that strangers would get their dirty mits on some of the most treasured wines in his cellar. So he spread the rumour that the devil lived there – Casillero del Diablo (Cellar of the Devil!)

    Mind you, if the devil did live there he’d be waving his pitchfork around in joy – these wines never fail to over deliver for the money. 

    If you’re feeling like branching out and trying something new quality Carmenere (pronounced car-men-yare) at this price is the way to go! Few do it better than Chile, it’s their signature grape.

    A member of the Cabernet grape family, Carmenere gets its name from the French word for ‘Crimson’. And there’s a reason for that. She’s is a big, dark red fruited number that’s medium bodied, rich and quite frankly will go an absolute treat with your favourite barbie slabs of meat – steaks, pork, grilled lamb and game meats.
