This premium Merlot is bold, red, and structured. With hints of dark and red fruits on the nose and a subtly spiced after-smell, this wine has notes of cherry and blackcurrant on the palate. It is dark purple in color with flecks of red pouring a well-rounded deep glass of wine. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve its flavor profile and leave you with a product that is full of fruity character. Late harvesting of fully ripened grapes allows Merlot to retain a medium body alongside its high alcohol content.
Merlot harvesting needs to be well-timed. Too early, and the wine loses its body, too late, and the grapes lose their acidity. The Uco Valley is an ideal climate to grow premium Merlot grapes as they thrive in temperate climates. The temperature spikes and drops in the valley, helping nurture an unbeatable little grape!
