Made from dry-farmed Carignan grown in Curico’s coastal mountains. Debajo means ‘beneath’ and refers to the vines’ struggle for water, digging their roots through the cracks in the dry earth to find water reserves deep beneath the ground.
The humble Carignan variety can produce captivating wines when grown in adversity. In the coastal mountains of Chile, the grapes for Debajo wine are grown in an unirrigated, rocky vineyard where the vines’ roots have to burrow deep to find water, nutrients and minerals. This struggle results in a wine with great concentration of flavours.. From dry-farmed bush vines in the Valle Central, this low yielding Carignan enjoys 15% Grenache.
The palate is hugely juicy, fresh with a gentle seam of tannin structure that is ultimately soft and supple.
Simple, rustic, flavoursome cooking: slow-cooked lamb stew, spicy bean casserole or roasted red meat.
