Intense ruby red in colour, with intense, fresh and fruity aromas of blackberry and plum, melded with smooth toasted notes and sweet vanilla. A medium-bodied wine with smooth tannins and a pleasing finish.
We'd recommend Pizza and other toasted cheese dishes such as panini and quesadillas for this wine.
picked using a combination of machine and hand-picking, the grapes are transported to the main winery in the Central valley for processing. After a short ferment in contact with the red skins in tank and vat using natural yeast selection, the red wine is pressed to release more extract and to add structure and tannins. The wine then continues fermenting in a combination of tank and oak casks for around 28 days, where-upon the wine is then racked through a series of tanks to release any solids and lees, before settling and marrying the lots of Merlot into a harmonious whole. The wine is lightly filtered and then bottled.
Decanter Magazine, Top 50 Best Value South American Wines, 2015: "Pepper, cassis and moreish chocolate tones envelop rich baked plum and wild herb aromas. Warm earth, leather and rugged savoury threads twist around fine grained tannins."
