Merlot
Tasting Notes:
It has a lush feel on the palate with black cherry flavor. The bouquet has spice notes of clove and bay leaf.


Vineyards:
The grapes come from our estate vineyards in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago in the Maule Valley. The soils are derived from volcanic ash and consist of sandy to sandy-loam earth. The vineyards are flat and receive an excellent exposure to sunlight. The yields are carefully controlled so as to produce concentrated and elegant wines.


Vinification process:
In order to extract color and aromas the must is in contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature. The wine is then left to macerate additional days in order to extract tannins. Prior to bottling, the wines are stabilized and filtered carefully to keep the integrity.
