El Incidente is Viu Manent’s wager on Carmenere, now considered to be Chile’s emblematic variety. Although it disappeared from the Old World after the phylloxera attack in the mid-19th century, it was rediscovered, rather by accident, in Chile in the early 1990s.

“El Incidente” is named after the now-legendary balloon flight I took with some friends over our Colchagua vineyards. The trip ended unexpectedly when we landed in the middle of an open air market in the town of Santa Cruz”,  José Miguel Viu.

Tasting Notes
Deep, intense violet in color. The complex, fruity, and ripe nose expresses the characteristics of the year with aromas of black fruits, black pepper, and a bit of leather and blonde tobacco. Great structure and complexity on the palate with tannins that are both chalky (typical of the terroir at La Capilla) and silky and that lend way to a profoundly persistent finish.

Varieties:
Carménère 97%, Malbec 3%.

Vineyards:
The grapes for this wine come from a selection from Viu Manent’s best vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. The Carménère comes from the La Capilla Vineyard, the Malbec from the San Carlos Vineyard.Tasting Notes
