Fitz Roy is a collaboration between Elixir Wine Group and Chile’s Alex Huber of Invina Wines with the intention of bringing you hand crafted, terroir driven, sustainably farmed Chilean varietal wine. This Carmenere is sourced from two section of Invina Batuco vineyard which is a thirty-year-old vineyard site that is own-rooted.
This inexpensive and yummy Carmenere is well balanced, medium bodied, and dry with silky tannins, and solid acidity. The Carmenere is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add a spicy characteristic, and Syrah to include notes of red licorice. The palate exudes flavors of black plum, dried raspberry, herbs, cherry, white pepper, red licorice, and a moderate oakiness. Will do well with steak.
