Carmenere

Certified Sustainable & Vegan

La Playa wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.

Notes from the Winemaker

Velvety light purple. On the nose, ripe blueberries with a hint of fine smoke. It has good ripe fruit presence with rounded tannins.
