CarinaE Prestige 2008
This rare wine is a perfect reflection of Carinae’s terroir. It is a harmonic convergence of Malbec, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Syrah, each picked at optimal ripeness and mainly aged for 18 months in new French barrels. Inky, richly and fruity with notes of chocolate and caramel, this wine is an expression of the finest wines of Argentina.
