Why the name Crazy Rows? The story behind the name "Crazy Rows" harks back to the vineyard's unique and innovative approach to viticulture. In the early 1950s, the founder of Bisquertt Family Vineyards, Osvaldo Bisquertt, decided to plant his vineyards in a way that was considered unconventional at the time. Instead of the traditional straight rows commonly used in vineyards, he planted the vines in a zigzag pattern, creating what appeared to be "crazy rows" when viewed from above.
One of the most distinctive features of this wine is its grape varietal - Carignan. This lesser-known red grape has found a perfect home in the Colchagua Valley, where it thrives in the warm Mediterranean climate and granite-rich soils. The result is a wine that is full of character, complexity, and depth.
Upon pouring a glass of Crazy Rows Carignan 2020, you will be captivated by its deep, ruby-red colour and inviting aromas of ripe red berries, black cherries, and spices. The nose is complex, with hints of cedar, tobacco, and vanilla, adding layers of intrigue to the wine.
On the palate, Crazy Rows Carignan truly shines. It is medium-bodied with velvety tannins and balanced acidity, making it incredibly approachable and easy to drink. The flavours of red and black fruits continue to unfold, accompanied by notes of black pepper, licorice, and a touch of oak. The finish is long and lingering, leaving you with a satisfying aftertaste that begs for another sip.
What sets the Crazy Rows Carignan 2020 apart is its exceptional quality, reflected in its impressive 97 points from Decanter. This recognition speaks to the meticulous craftsmanship and dedication to excellence that the Bisquertt Family Vineyards pour into every bottle of their wines. It's no wonder that wine enthusiasts and critics alike are raving about this outstanding wine.
