A brilliant ruby red colour and a combination of aromas of fresh red fruits with herbal and balsamic notes that are characteristic to the variety, all framed with roasted coffee, caramel and pastries coming from the oak. The palate is soft, with flavours of cherries, plums and a subtle note of peppermint. A wine with a good volume and fine tannins, which give a very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel.
The grapes for the Estate Series Merlot come from our vineyards located in the Curicó Valley, where rainy winters and dry summers characterize the regional climate. The vineyard is planted on deep clay-loam soils, typical of the terroir in Chile’s Central Valley.
The grapes were harvested in early April and taken to the winery, where they were destemmed, crushed, and deposited in stainless steel tanks. Depending on the development of each individual lot, the post-fermentative maceration lasted 10 to 25 days. 75% of the wine was aged in oak barrels for 6 months to round out its tannins and add a sweet feeling on the palate.
