Vina Maitia Weon Carignan
Origin: República de Chile
Tasting Notes: Blackberry, cassis, cedar and black pepper
Suggested Pairings: ---
Weon is a basic slang word that is used for almost everything in Chile, mostly equivalent to "mate.' This is a fruit-driven, fresh and varietal wine with low alcohol, aged in concrete for six months. A serious nose and palate is dominated by Carignan, with no influence from oak. It has fine, slightly dusty tannins, a lighter style of the grape with shorter macerations.
