A southern French staple, Carignane also thrives in Chile, as this focused red from a celebrated winemaker demonstrates.
What You Need To Know
Acclaimed Chilean winemaker Adriana Cerdi had spent a career making wines for others before she finally started her own project, Meli. With her sons, she bought a property in the Maule Valley that was unusual in that it featured 60-year-old vines of Carignane and Riesling, varieties rarely featured in Chile. The old, dry-farmed vineyard ripens grapes slowly in this temperate subregion, which is notable for its long growing season of cool nights and pleasantly warm days.
