Finland became an independent state on 6 December 1917. The newly born state was willed into being by the Finns after a long struggle. In spite of hard times, the Finnish people have for almost a hundred years engaged in the building of their country and making decisions together. Now the Finns are leading their country into a new century with courage and determination.
The centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017 will be the most significant commemorative year for this generation of Finns. The centenary emphasises Finland’s strengths, such as equality and democracy by offering Finns and friends of Finland diverse and international centenary programme in Finland and abroad. The centenary year provides opportunities to better understand the past, experience the jubilee together and set the course for Finland’s future success.
In early 1990, Château Carsin was purchased by Finnish wine enthusiasts, the Berglund family. At the same time New World wines were becoming strong in the markets. In order to be competitive, a totally modern winery was ordered from Australia. With that investment winery is able to compete against other French producers.
Winery has used in production traditional Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Suomi Finland 100 logo is on the label as a proof of partnership.
For quite young wine, color is already dark red. When you circulate the glass, wine flows down, as it would do when you observe older wines.
Taste reveals that you are having quite young wine in your hands. Medium-bodied with soft tannins.
